If you would like to make sure your logo colors come out correctly, use this service. Because our printers print using CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black combinations), the 4-color process will not always convert or adjust your PMS (Pantone Matching System®) color automatically or perfectly.
Quantity 1 of this selection will give you a PMS color match for one color(Excludes matching textures or gradients.) If your order contains more than 1 type of material to be color matched to, then the order count must be doubled, equaling to 1 per color, 1 per material.
After you select this option, pay and upload your file*, a color expert from our team of graphic designers will match the closest possible CMYK color value to your specific PMS color. Please be advised that a PMS color match will add 1-2 business days to your in-house turnaround time.
*Prepare your files to help ensure a correct PMS color match. Please supply a LAYERED file. Acceptable file formats are: .PDF, .TIFF, .EPS, Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop.
To see the CMYK color values of your PMS color, you can reference the Pantone Color Bridge Coated color book. Look for “CP”, meaning Process Coated. (e.g. 192CP).
NOTE: We can color-match all media materials, except for Backlit Fabric and Acrylic Panels. We cannot color-match to Neon or Metalic colors.
*Though we strive for fast turnaround times, we understand it is crucial to get your color right. Please be advised that a hard copy PMS color match will cause delay, varying turnaround times. Note times for shipping as well, depending on your method.
If you order a hard copy, please expect a digital proof for your approval of the hard copy, after which we will ship to you for your in-person review. If you like the color match, please approve a 2nd time, and we will continue with your order as usual from that point.
This banner is not acceptable. The color matching was great, but the whole banner was printed larger than the art provided and our logo is cut off at the top and the text is not right. I had sent a photo of a prototype that showed what we wanted and a proof was provided of which I shifted to provide better places for the type to be coordinated. It looks like you printed only the art in the yellow area, though the template states that the blue area does print.
