Color Swatches

Color Swatches are provided as a tool to help clients more accurately predict the color of a printed design.  Material swatches (mailed to the client) correspond to digital swatches (downloaded and installed into Adobe products).

Since the color on a computer screen is different from the color that actually prints, find the color you like on the material swatch, then use the corresponding color in the digital swatch.
