Due to human perception, light levels, monitor calibration, and all sorts of printing variations (humidity, heat, age of fuser, toner changes, etc), not to mention the difference between colors created by light and colors created by print, it is impossible to do perfect color matching from what you see on your screen to what we print. However, by using our color profile with your image editors, you'll get a little closer than you would otherwise. Download this file and use it with your image editor of choice. Each software package is different in how you assign a color profile, so consult your owner's manual for help on how to do that.
Our website will only accept RGB images. CMYK images will be rejected. However, for the closest color matching, we recommend that designers develop in CMYK and then convert their files to RGB before uploading them to our site.
- Be aware that colors can turn out much darker in print than they appear on your computer screen, and that slight nuances may be lost.
- Because of the factors mentioned above that affect color in print, we cannot guarantee exact color matching between printings, or between different materials.
