Standard colors not shown include: White, Black, and Transparent colors (not all standard colors are available as transparent. Contact factory if transparent colors are required). Colors other than our standard selection will require a color match charge of $30.00 (E) per color. please specify a color to be matched using a recognized industry color specification system (i.e. Pantone Matching System – PMS). Due to variations of ink formulations, subtle color changes can occur beyond our control. Therefore, perfect color matches cannot be guaranteed. 

Ink printed on any background other than white will appear darker than shown here.
For contrast, we recommend that fluorescent inks be used against black or one of our dark standard colors. Industry standards indicate that fluorescent inks will fade rapidly when exposed to direct sunlight (timeline varies according to location and usage). Fluorescent inks are recommended for indoor or short-term outdoor usage only.

 

 

Flexo Ink Note: The ink system used in flexography is not the same as screen printing and the colors will not match our screen-printed colors exactly. Most Flexo printing is on a white gloss paper. Please keep in mind that printing these inks on a white matte paper or any colored stock will alter the color even more, and matching is impossible. Fluorescent and Metallic colors will appear much lighter and less vibrant than when printed using the screen-printing process.

Regarding Colors and Your Computer Monitor: Colors will appear differently from one computer monitor to another. Please see the actual screen-printed color chips found in the back of our Full-Line Catalog to reference accurate colors.
