Blended cyan, magenta and yellow toners have been shown to produce a large variety of colors. However, blended toners possess several inherent disadvantages including increased pile height of reproduced image.

It is suggested to mix black toner in correct proportions with one, two or three color toners to produce equivalent color but with less toner.

For example, a brown toner can be obtained by mixing two parts magenta, two parts yellow and one part cyan. The same shade of brown can be obtained with two parts mage ta, 2.3 parts yellow and one part bla k. Whereas the former required
2.48 mg/cm2, the latter required only 2.11 mg/cm to produce the same color.
