Every now and then we receive questions about
the purchase of the software or the work with palettes.
Here you can find a small selection:
My colour system isn’t included in the list
Q: We work with Pantone colours. Why can’t we download
Q: We have an in-house colour system. Can you prepare palettes for this?
A: Some colour systems can’t be offered as a download because of license rights (e.g. Pantone, NCS). For this you have to contact the manufactuerer.
We would like to measure other more unknown systems which are not listed for free if there is a general interest. In case of specific in-house colours it is possible to measure them and create palettes for a charge. You should expect costs of approx. 200-600 Euros based on the number of colours.
Which optimization is the right one?
Q: We work with a specific printer and it is important
that the printouts have a good colour quality. This printer isn’t listed
with the optimizations. What shall we do?
A: It would go beyond the scope of this project to prepare palettes for each printer. Normally the use of the sRGB variant on current printers leads to good matches with the original colours. sRGB (Standard RGB) was was released in 2000 by HP and Microsoft in order to counteract the chaos of different RGB-displays on different output devices. Now (2008) the standard became widely accepted. You can test the colour quality of your system before buying by using the pdf testfile.
