Often we'll write or print out noted colors on the job proof so it's with the layout of the sign or wrap. We typically color match using one of two sources — a Pantone color chart or our in-house-created color charts through Roland's color system. Pantone charts are a great universal color source when match- ing up to colors a customer already uses. By creating our own color charts, we can print an array of spot colors on the media types that we use. For example, we have a color chart on our premium wrap media, 3M IJ180Cv3, a color chart on 3M IJ35c intermediate vinyl, and a color chart print- ed on 3M IJ180mC-120 printable metal- lic. Not only is the customer choosing the hue they want, but they can also see exact- ly how it looks on the specific vinyl type. In addition to noting the spot color, we often apply an extra decal or piece of the printed graphic to the paperwork itself for In addition to our Pantone charts, we also have custom color charts for each of our machines and media types for accurate color selection. Clear notations of colors used are noted in the customer's paperwork. 9 8 G R A P H I C S P R O J U L Y 2 0 2 1 G R A P H I C S - P R O. C O M
