Color Management - Because Color is Important!

When printing on a different substrates colors don't match the exact colors that are on your computer. This is because computer monitors give off a colored light known as RGB (red, green, blue). Printers on the other hand, print in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) mode. The reason that the colors on your computer may look different when printed is because computer monitors have a larger color range than a printer does. This can sometimes cause problems when someone needs a color to be exact, but we have a solution - our color match proof system

Our color match proof system is a service that you should take advantage of if you are looking for a specific color. We print the color you are looking for along with other color options and you can choose which one will work best. The color match proof is printed on the exact material you will need your artwork printed on, to ensure the color is correct.

 

Color Match Proof

 

It is best to plan enough time before you need your signage to do a color match proof, because we do send you the print for you to approve before we proceed with an order.

The Difference Between RGB & CMYK Files

Our printers only print in CMYK. If you submit a file in RBG, color shifting will occur when we switch the file to CMYK. This can also lead to loss of effects. We do check files before we print, but to ensure the highest quality of prints, please submit files in CMYK.

The cost for the color match proof is $45.00 for one color and an additional $10.00 per added color.
