*CMYK values are approximate and were established under specific criteria. To be used as a starting point only. When reproducing these colours in CMYK, please have the printer adjust them visually on the specific substrate and within your printing parameters so that the best possible simulation to the colour is achieved.

+Please note: The colour may appear different under various light sources due to metamerism. This metamerism is to be expected between multiple substrates due to varying methods of product manufacturing.
