you are all looking at a web graphic. Allready rendered as process
colors. Its impossible to say how many "printing plates" its on.
Obviously its more than 1. But that graphic could easily be a spot color
print job, Which I think by today's standards is acceptable. And I
believe you stated a logo should be free of "screens" You only need 1
plate to do a screen, so this is also irrelevent.
