Spot Colour Business Cards FAQ’s

Yes. If you’d like to send us a copy of your business card, letterhead or any other item that needs matching to, we’ll find the Pantone® colour nearest to your sample and advise you. (Pantone® is a colour matching system used throughout the commercial printing industry).
If you need to send us an existing business card or letterhead etc. to match to, then please send to:

Generally, no! Some colours are fairly representative whereas others are a long way off. The monitor you view your proof on is a device that mixes colours using red, green and blue (RGB). Without getting too technical, if your monitor has not been calibrated to display a Pantone® colour, then it’s unlikely you will see an accurate representation.
If choosing one or more specific spot colours (for branding purposes etc.) then it’s essential the colours are chosen from a printed Pantone® swatch, unless you know your screen is accurately calibrated.
An example – if you were to select Pantone® Violet in your graphics program, it’s very likely that this will show as a ‘blue’ onscreen. If you were then to look at Pantone® Violet in a Pantone® swatch you’ll see that the true colour is actually a rich purple. It follows that if you’d selected this colour for your design from what you see onscreen (blue), then it’s very likely that you won’t be happy with the final printed results (purple).
If you don’t have access to a Pantone® swatch or just need some advice before sending in your artwork, please contact Debbie on: 01202 736979 who will be happy to help.Contact Us
Yes. We will first check your artwork onscreen and then create a PDF proof through our software and then email you the file for final checking. Press proofs are not available for business cards due to the expense involved in creating them, and are usually reserved for brochure/magazine work, or other colour-critical material.
Unfortunately no. However, we do have a very experienced design team in-house who can help prepare any artwork required at a sensible and realistic cost. Whether it’s brochures, flyers, letterheads or even a company logo, we have the expertise required.
