Does Packlane offer color matching?
April 01, 2022 11:27pm
Packlane does not offer color matching services at this time, and cannot guarantee the consistency of color appearance between multiple orders, or between the website display (aka on-screen appearance) and resulting print appearance.
Differences between RGB (Red, Green, Blue) and CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK) files can cause significant differences in how color appears on-screen compared to the final print. Printing is done using CMYK inks, so if you supply your images in RGB they will be automatically converted to CMYK. RGB colors may appear duller or desaturated when printed.

While we are unable to guarantee color matching, the vast majority of our customers are pleased with the final appearance of the color on their printed boxes.
Pantone (PMS) Colors
If your design is set up with Pantone colors, they will be converted to CMYK. To quickly find the Pantone to CMYK conversion in Adobe Illustrator, you can check out the video here!
