ICC color management means having a workflow that is predictable, consistent, and repeatable from capture through proofing to final output.

For the best color results, you need to calibrate each device that is contributing to your workflow to ensure it is accurately reproducing colo...

Smartphone-Displays und Computer-Monitore sind das Fenster zur digitalen Farbwelt. Wenn Sie die Farbfreigabe per E-Mail oder Kurznachricht erteilen, sollten Sie die Einschränkungen unbedingt kennen.  Als Einsteiger sollten Sie wissen, dass Ihre Geräte jeweils auf verschiedenen Farbmodellen zur Anzeige von Farben basieren.

It’s been said that everything you need to know you learned in kindergarten. Does this phrase ring true for print and packaging designers? In the spirit of spring, we attempted to use a simple childhood activity—dyeing eggs—to solve some of the most perplexing color issues facing the packaging designer/printer relationship.                 Here are three lessons to learn about color in print and packaging from our annual egg dyeing ...

In our additive vs. subtractive color models post earlier this week, we talked about color models and CMYK printing. However, anyone responsible for printing Halloween goods or packaging knows that that some colors are just too difficult to reproduce using only CMYK inks. And orange can be one of those colors! A fourth color, black (K, which stands for key) is often added to subtractive color printing applications. Since C+M+Y actually create a muddy brownish color due to ink impurities in C, M ...
