Colour instructions

  • Since we use offset/print machine and we always ask our customers for Pantone CP references which are related to Coated Paper (same material used for our viewers). To avoid the additional cost for using Pantone inks please make sure all color elements are in CMYK.
  • Follow this step-by-step process to apply CMYK values with the closest Pantone reference:
    1. Select the CMYK element
    2. Click on the Recolor Artwork wheel on the top bar
    3. Click the swatches menu and select Color Books
    4. From the dropdown menu select the PANTONE+ Color Bridge Coated option and hit OK
    5. Go to the color palette on your right, and clicking on the burger icon select CMYK
  • This will give you the correct CMYK breakdown closest to the Pantone for matching. Please provide us with both the CMYK breakdown and the Pantone reference you received from Illustrator in a Word doc. In this case we will be able to match your suited color as close as possible through our production process.
  • Please find the video instruction below on how to apply the Pantone CP color.
