BTW, when you need darker colors, what presumably does the printer is to
reduce the light "color"s and increasing the percentage of "black"
instead. It's less likely that the printer achieves the darker shades
(including lower midtones) by printing colors on top of each other. That's
the very purpose of including "light black" in the inkset... With PDN we
use the colored inks only w/o any black ink.
