COLOR MATCHING/EXPECTATIONS: Colors vary from one monitor to the next. What you see might not be the exact color that we use in printing. We follow the PMS pantone guide. Use the color kits to ensure the color you see on your screen is exactly the color you want. The paper also affects the pigment of the actual ink. Color might shift slightly from the color you see in your color kit. Color posters in dealer studios are for marketing only, use the color swatch book to select colors.
