Help With Print Colours

My artwork consists of solid colours


If your artwork is built on solid colours (e.g. solid blue with a solid yellow border), then you'll be working with Pantone colours. Pantone colours are a range of fixed, coded colour shades which allow all parties (you, us, designers, printers, etc.) to achieve the exact same colour from start to finish. Samsung, for example, achieves imaculate brand consistency by allocating all printing to one exact blue: Pantone 286 c. See our 'Pantone Colour Chart' to locate your Pantone colours. 

Below, are three examples of solid-colour artwork. 

My artwork consists of gradients 


Gradient-filled artwork require different printing techniques such as digital or dye-sublimation printing. This type of printing uses CYMK references instead of Pantone, therefore achieving exact Pantone colours is not possible due to the different colour system. Slight colour dissimilarities may occur but we will do our upmost to match as close as possible. Usually to the naked eye, there isn't any difference. 

CMYK colour system refers to the use of four inks: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Its a combination of the different percentages that make up the different colours.

Within our logo, the pink text would be CMYK 0 92 18 0 or sometimes displayed as C0 M92 Y18 K0.
