We do not print Half-Tones using metallic inks. You should provide the factory with a good glossy composite of how you anticipate the print to look. We do not guarantee exact PMS color matches, however, we will attempt to match your desired PMS color as close as possible.

  Imprint Colors


When submitting artwork for spot colors please specify a coated PMS number from the Pantone Matching System. If you do not specify a PMS color the factory will use a standard shade of standard color. Not every PMS color shade can be matched 100%. Because of variances in inks, substrates, and printing processes the finished product will not usually match a printed color composite.
