Colour Accuracy

Should colour accuracy be critical to your job, please note that by nature CMYK digital printing is incapable of matching all desired colours due to its reduced colour gamut as compared to RGB.
If colour accuracy is critical and the order size is large, it is best to order a small version of your print first for verification, as DPI Canada does not guarantee colour accurate prints.

Notes on Colour Accuracy

  • Colour shifts between different prints and medias may occur, especially if they are printed at different times.
  • Vector art such as text and logos will print differently when rasterized in your file or exported as a tiff or bitmap, as it will be processed as an image rather than vector art.
  • Your colour accuracy will always be better if the document set up in your application is set to CMYK mode rather than RGB. (Images can remain in RGB if you wish.)
  • Pantone spot colours will print more accurately and more consistently if they are left as a spot colour in your file rather than converting it to CMYK.
