Do you ever get concerned about how your colour is going to look when it is printed?
Today we got a paint colour sample in the post from a client who wanted to know what colour he should use to get a match on his printed materials.
So what do we do?
Well, our I3 calibration reader examines it and our special software produces a printable swatch with all the closest matches available. We print this off and hand it to our client. Simple!
Until recently we would use a physical pantone chart, examine it under special lighting, find the best match then as most jobs are now printed in full colour, rather than spot colour, we have to use a colour bridge guide to find the best match from full colour too.
Even then, every material on every device will appear differently, our colour profiles close this down, but it was always a worry until the ink is on the paper, not any more!
It takes a while but we will do this for you when required for only £25.
What a handy tool.
