There are three methods to color matching; Method 2 is the majority of what our artists/customers prefer.
Use the Pantone Formula Guide (we are currently using the fourth edition, first printing guide) to indicate the specific colors you require. Please specify if the color is from the coated or uncoated section. If you do not indicate coated or uncoated, we will use coated color to match. To ensure that the color is correct, check that your computer file and Pantone colors match.
The D&L trademark tried-and-true with lots o' happy artists and customers. The color is matched straight from our monitor. All you have to do is trust our eyes -- and our years of experience.
Down and dirty: you mix ink, swatch it, and send it to us. This ensures dead-on color matching.
