Unless specified otherwise Ultra Ink™ will be printed directly from your provided artwork. Please note that colors can look different from screen to print. Do not send your artwork in RGB color mode, RBG uses a different range of colors that cannot be achieved with CMYK printing.
Use Pantone colors or our stock colors in your artwork to ensure results. If using spot colors always be sure to verify selected colors with your Pantone Book. Ultra Ink™ is a CMYK process so 100% Pantone match is not guaranteed. All color matches must be called out when placing your order.
