  • Colours are each displayed with coordinating numbers and ink formulations so that printers anywhere in the world will understand clearly how to best mix colours when matching on press.
  • Colours are predominantly arranged chromatically to allow for ease in visually locating colour families and ranges.
  • Printed colours 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.
  • An index can be found in the back of each guide for easy location of colours by number.
  • The convenient fan guide format allows for optimal colour scanning and portability.
  • 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 colour evaluation and matching.
