Color Deviation or Color Tolerance in Custom Packaging Printing Job
Color tolerance in digital printing
If the customer thinks that the color reproduction in digital printing is different from electronic manuscripts, it is because the color reproduction in electronic screens is in RGB mode.
In comparison with the printed objects, this difference will objectively exist.
This is not because we have artificially adjusted in the production process.
The printing effect of digital printing is to directly represent the manuscript provided by the customer. Whatever color manuscript the customer provides is implemented by digital printing. Without the customer’s permission, the design artwork formatting team or production department staff will not adjust the color of the customer’s manuscripts. (This feature is different from traditional printing)
Color tolerance in plate applied printing
If the customer thinks that there is a difference between the color reproduction of the plate printing and the electronic manuscript, it is because the color reproduction of the electronic screen is in RGB mode. Compared to the printed object, this difference will objectively exist.
We can only do our best to adjust the color and hue in the production process to meet customer requirements. If there is a sample bag, we will stick to the sample bag color; if there is no sample bag, we will stick to the Pantone color number color to reduce color differences.
Color tolerance between packaging production job batches
If we want to make sure the same color matches between multiple batches or orders, please be sure to specify the SKU name of the color design of the previous order when placing the order, so that we can find the production dates of the previous order and reduce the gap between batches.
Color differences always exist
Please also note that the color difference between order batches objectively remains, no matter how precise the arrangement and production.
Designs with rich colors are not easily visible to the naked eye, but some solid colors are still visible to the naked eye.
Different production lines, different processes (digital printing and plate printing), different printing materials, and different weather conditions (temperature, humidity) directly lead to color differences in printing because different weather conditions (temperature, humidity) affect the volatilization rate of inks and solvents.
The simpler the color used, the more difficult it is to track and match.
In short, Color Deviation or Color Tolerance is inevitable. Even though our production staff always do their best to reduce this tolerance, we still have to treat it reasonably.
