        • 2,161 solid colours and ink formulations

          HOW TO USE

          • Compare and evaluate colours only under optimal lighting conditions. Use the lighting indicator tool found at the back of the guides or a light booth supporting either D65 or D50 light sources
          • Over time any and all papers will yellow and inks will fade. In order to ensure you have the most accurate colour for specification and evaluation, and its recommended that you replace your guides and books annually.
