The most accurate colour matches can be achieved when Pantone
references are provided and the surface being printed is white.
In the absence of Pantone references, a colour swatch or
previously printed sample is acceptable but colour matches are
less accurate in this case. It is not possible to produce accurate
colour matches on any surface that is not white.
Surface colour always influences the printed colour and it is
advisable to order a printed proof if the colour match is
critical. If a printed proof is not ordered, we will assume that
our best attempt to match the colour reference requested is
acceptable to you, given the constraints or limitations of the ink
system in use and the nature and colour of the surface being
As a general rule, orders for bright colours to be printed onto
dark surfaces will be the least accurate, eg. white printed onto
black will appear light grey and all basic Pantone colours and all
central Pantone colours will appear very dull when printed onto
black or coloured surfaces.
Metallic inks (gold and silver) have a reduced life due to their
formulation. No guarantee for adhesion, chemical resistance
(including perspiration) or abrasion resistance can be given on
these colours. Some products can be over-varnished (at additional
cost) to protect metallic colours and this should be requested in
writing at the time of placing your order.
Providing the image and the product remains the same, you can have
your design printed in different colours. Please allow an
"ink colour change" charge every time the colour
changes. Please ask for details.
