Printed Colour Atlas

Where can I look up the CMYK-colour values?

The DIGITAL COLOUR ATLAS contains this CMYK swatchbook.It consists of three areas with each 33 pages with the CMYK colour area for the offset printing conforming to standards on coated and uncoated paper and paper suitable for newspapers.

The supplemental CMYK-Atlas on paper.

All colour fields have been measured individually and have been deposited to the software. This date base is used for all CMYK calculations and is consulted within the software – thus is the way how the DIGITAL COLOUR ATLAS reaches highly exact and unique documented CMYK-results.

We do not produce the CMYK atlas ourselfes, we order it from a notabler Berlin Satzstudio satzinform.
