Many of our decoration methods allow for the opportunity to closely match the imprint color to a specific requirement. Customers who require specific color matching must request this in writing and provide us with the Pantone PMS color. PMS stands for Pantone Matching System ®. We have an online pantone color chart that you can use to compare colors relative to themselves. Be aware that all monitors are different and the color you see on the screen will surely be different when viewed in person. Where PMS matching is available, there may be an additional charge per color for this service as inks need to be carefully blended to achieve a close match to your color. Please note that PMS color matches are not possible for digital printing or 4 color process printing. For full color printing the color mode in your artwork must be set up as CMYK or the digital printing software will convert the color in your artwork to CMYK and try to match it as close as possible. There is no guarantee of a color match since the conversion from other color modes to CMYK will often result in a very different color. It is best that you do the color conversion of your images to CMYK. If your project is being digitally printed and you require a PMS match, we highly urge you to request a test print / pre-production sample made first. This process requires us to print a sample and then adjust the cmyk values in your artwork to the PMS color of your choice. Sometimes this will take several tries. The cost for test prints / pre-production samples varies from product to product. We will make every attempt to match your requested color; however, we cannot guarantee it. Please check that your artwork has been formatted accurately. We cannot be held responsible for formatting errors in customer supplied artwork. If your artwork is to be embroidered, we will select a thread which most closely matches your PMS color and you will have the opportunity to see this choice when you approve your "sew-out." Exact color matches cannot be guaranteed.
