Ink Colors

Ink colors are endless. With digital printing, we can print almost any color (excluding metallic, white or neon) and will vary depending on equipment used to print, heat and moisture present. We will always do our best to match inks as close as possible. If matching to fabric, object and/or other item that is not ink on paper, keep in mind that they are different mediums. We we will match to the best of any printer’s ability but will not proceed if the color variation is two shades too dark and/or light. Please review our common ink colors here or view the paper swatches below to get an idea of paper and ink color pairings.

Paper & Envelope Colors

Because INK colors are endless, these swatches are only a guide to color matching envelopes, backings, pockets, accessories and ink. Although different mediums, we do our best to match the ink to paper but will not be exact. If you need a specific INK color and not paper, let us know by using the Pantone Color System Graphics colors. We will return forward the envelope/paper(s) that are closest or pairs up best. Colors differ slightly on matte & metallic finishes and on screen.

Note about ink on paper: Paper mills produce paper in batches, thus producing slight variations in color/sheen. This, in specific, is also true with paper, ribbon and/or materials with a metallic and/or iridescent sheen since each take in and reflect light in different ways.

Pocket folders are available in most of the colors shown and vary from pocket style/type. (Photo of pocket style options soon to come.)

If you need help with paper or envelope selection, please let us know. Other options may be available and will recommend only if they exist.
