Here are the values we use on offset presses for rich black.
100K - 60C - 40M - 40Y
This info could make it into the wiki as this question is raised from time
to time. If anyone has a minute to put it there, please do.
Also, it is unadvisable to use rich black for text purposes. Generally
speaking, using more than 3 inks for any text color is more likely to create
registration issues, especially if the text is used at small typesize.
