Large Format CMYK Swatches

Written by Jeff Harrison

Is it Orange Red… or Red Orange? Let’s face it: the stakes are high when printing to large format output. If the colors are off, it’s a major expense. Not only in materials, but in time too.

When colors are a little off on a digital color copier, you can adjust the color in the file and print off another complete example (in about 120 seconds). Not true with large format… it’s tedious and expensive to experiment with color to get things right.

I’ve painstakingly laid out more than 3,000 CMYK swatches, specifically for large format output. Also included are 99 grayscale swatches from 1% to 100%!

Go see the details.
