The best way to visualize how color will react in real world lighting conditions is to use a quality light booth. Traditional light booths contain common illuminants like daylight, incandescent, and fluorescent to replicate how color will look in the retail store and post-purchase in outdoor and home lighting. Today, the increased use of LED lamps in home, commercial, and retail environments is impacting decades of standardized lighting procedures.   How LED is Changing the Game LED li...

Pour mesurer la couleur, un dispositif de colorimétrie éclaire un échantillon, capture la quantité de lumière transmise ou reflétée dans la plage de longueurs d’onde de 380 à 780 nm et la quantifie en mesure spectrale. La colorimétrie est nécessaire pour spécifier, quantifier, communiquer, formuler et vérifier la qualité des couleurs pour des travaux dans lesquels celles-ci constituent un critè...

Learn more about light, reflection curves, optical brighteners, and more.     Illuminants Electro magnetic radiation in the wavelength range from 380 nm to 730 nm is seen as light by our eyes. Low wavelengths show as blue light. Then the spectrum continues from green, yellow, orange to red. UV radiation is located in the range below 380 nm; the range above 730 nm is called infrared radiation. The visual impression of a colored body changes by the composition of the incoming light. ...

2020 forced manufacturers to rethink the way they work. Around the globe, COVID put a hard stop on the travel required to approve prototypes and delayed the shipment of physical samples. Many brands started looking for ways to use digital color samples to keep production moving but struggled with the inability to replicate how a color sample would look on a prototype.   The PANTORA desktop application closes this gap. With PANTORA, users can capture or import spectral samples and store, man...

COVID-19 has forced many companies to rethink the way they communicate, approve, and produce color.    For some, that means trying to conduct “business as usual” from a remote location. For others, it means finding ways to manage color without travel. Either way, we know our customers are doing everything they can to sustain business while keeping their employees healthy and safe.    We want to help. Over the past few months we’ve been adding new resources t...

The Pantone Color of the Year announcement is always exciting. Not only does it set the stage for upcoming trends, it also provides brand owners and designers critical guidance for marketing and product development. However, those who are charged with manufacturing products and packaging with trending colors (like 2021's Ultimate Gray and Illuminating) know it doesn’t “just happen.” It takes time and effort to incorporate new colors. Whether you work in paints, plasti...

Black Friday. Not only is it the much anticipated start to holiday shopping, it’s also a day manufacturers have been preparing for all year long. Whether mass-producing holiday cards, candy canes, plastic toys, or festive clothing, accurate color is a must. Manufacturers can’t ship two of the same toy if they won’t match on the showroom floor, and holiday sweaters that are a shade off will end up at a discount store instead of a fashion boutique. Perfection is especially import...

Whether you’re producing textiles, automotive parts, or plastic pieces, color needs to remain consistent or the final product will be rejected. Unfortunately, there are many ways for color errors to creep in during manufacturing. Creating and using accurate digital color standards is one way to combat these errors. Digital color standards can be used in software to specify and communicate color, formulate colorants and raw materials, and control color quality. They give brand owners peac...

As the industrial plastics market grows increasingly competitive and demands more sustainable practices, manufacturers need new ways to formulate and produce accurate color faster, with less waste. Digital color standards are one of the most effective tools to bridge this gap. They also enable color work and communication from remote locations.   With digital color standards, brands and designers can set clear expectations with supply chains. In turn, suppliers can achieve color goals wit...

Whether you work with plastics, coatings or textiles, you must consistently achieve in-tolerance color or your product could be rejected before it even makes it to the shelf or showroom.     This is especially true for brands that rely on off-site suppliers and manufacturers for raw materials and parts that come together at assembly, such as the plastic dashboard, fabric seats, and coated interior panels of a car. Even if each site produces in-tolerance color, it must be monitored an...

Nos clients qui travaillent désormais à distance doivent savoir que la modification d’une petite variable, par exemple l’approbation des couleurs depuis chez eux, sous une lumière différente, ou l’envoi de spécifications par e-mail au lieu d’un échantillon physique, peut créer des problèmes chromatiques qui risquent de prendre des proportions importantes. La première étape, et la plus critique, du contrôle des couleurs reste la communication. Ces ressources vous aideront à vous lancer. L’import...

Les spectrophotomètres (dits « spectros ») sont des instruments de colorimétrie utilisés pour capturer et évaluer la couleur. Dans le cadre d’un programme de contrôle des couleurs, les donneurs d’ordres et designers les utilisent pour spécifier et communiquer la couleur, tandis que les fabricants y ont recours pour surveiller la précision des couleurs tout au long de la production. Les spectrophotomètres sont capables de mesurer quasiment n’importe quel échantillon liquide, plastique, papier, mé...

Les écrans de smartphones et d’ordinateurs sont autant de fenêtres sur l’univers numérique de la couleur, mais si vous approuvez des couleurs par e-mail ou SMS, vous devez en connaître les limites.  Tout d’abord, chacun de vos appareils se base sur un modèle chromatique différent. Les périphériques d’entrée, comme votre appareil photo et votre écran, utilisent un modèle chromatique additif pour l’affichage des couleurs. Partant de l’obscurité, ils y ajoutent de la lumière rouge, v...

Appearance is more than just color. It’s an all-inclusive look at everything inherent to an object, including texture, gloss, transparency, translucency, and special effects like sparkle and shimmer. When viewed from different angles or under different lighting conditions, appearance effects can change our perception of color. That's why it’s important to control both color and appearance throughout design and development.  Durable goods brands use appearance effects to captur...
