  • Colors are each displayed along with coordinating numbers.
  • Colors are predominantly arranged chromatically. However an index can be found in the back of the FORMULA GUIDES and COLOR BRIDGE guides to assist in easy location of colors by number.
  • Printed colors bleed off both page sides so colors can be best analysed for matching when guide pages are laid on top of printed works during evaluation.
  • Guides are produced on text-weight paper in order to best simulate the most commonly used industry printing substrate.
  • A lighting indicator tool can be found at the back of each guide, allowing the user to instantly understand if current lighting conditions are suitable for accurate color evaluation and matching.
