It is best to design the artwork using CMYK. RGB and Pantone will work as well but colors may vary. UNDERSTAND that color is device dependent and the same PMS color will look different depending on what printer and media is used. Please note that we use a 6 color process and some PMS colors are impossible to match. If accurate coloring is required a sample should be sent to Custom Sync Slates.
Custom Sync Slates is not responsible for:
Disk(s) lost or damaged in transit
Non Print ready files.
Spelling errors in a file not typeset by us.
Spelling errors in a file the client has signed off on.
