Colour management

Colour is of utmost importance when it comes to branding. External factors may influence the final printed colour outcome such as various different substrates and their absorbencies and textures, also weather temperatures and humidity plays a role in digital printing. The following are required to match your colours as close as possible:

  • Epson, chromalin or irises colour proofs
  • Pantone references
  • CMYK values (each set of CMYK colour has different values and may cause colour variation in final product)
  • Printed matter such as litho or screen print samples, product packaging etc.
  • All RGB files will be converted to CMYK and will change the final colour output
  • We suggest that if time allows you ALWAYS request a colour strike to approve prior to production
