Color Matching: Color matching on non-porous substrates like plastic is less precise than with paper printing. This is especially true for light colors, pastels and when printing on colored or recycled plastic.

Our production process complies with ISO 12647-2 and we utilize calibration methods to ensure accurate color from proof to final product.
