Posted March 27, 2020 by X-Rite Color

Our customers who are now working remotely need to be aware that changing a small variable – such as approving color from home under a different light source, or emailing specifications instead of sending a physical sample – can introduce color issues that risk creating a larger color problem.

The first and most critical stage to color control is accurate color communication. These resources will help you get started.
