Some colours are much more challenging to reproduce perfectly in print. The charts below contain a series of CMYK colours that are known to be reliable for offset printing.
While we cannot offer exact colour matching, we can recommend these relatively safe choices for your designs. Using these charts will help you achieve greater consistency in accurate colour reproduction.
The ‘base’ colour is displayed on the left of each row. As you progress to the right, the colour values decrease gradually. The lower rows in each chart show secondary colours.
Please note that your monitor settings may affect what you see on your screen vs. the finished product from a printer. Inkjet or laser printers may also produce varying results based on settings. If precise colour is vital to your project, we recommend that you purchase a proof of your print job to see exactly how it will look in print.
