Imprint Colors

Spot Color Printing

Spot colors are used when only one or two solid imprint colors are needed or when an imprint color has to match perfectly and be consistent. Spot colors are available as standard colors or as PMS colors. PMS colors typically cost between $20-$50 per color, per print run. We will select standard colors unless a specific PMS color is requested.

Process Color Printing

Process color, also known as CMYK or four-color process printing, is printed from four separate printing plates. Four-color process printing uses four inks (hence the term 'four color process'): cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK), to produce full color reproduction. Please be aware that when printing in the process format, spot colors must be converted to equivalent process colors because spot colors in your art file may produce a different hue once reproduced utilizing full color process.

Color Checklist

  • Art should be created in the desired spot colors unless product is to be printed four-color process.
  • When selecting spot colors, please choose from the standard color list for the item ordered or the Pantone Solid swatch libraries.
  • Color Photoshop files must be saved in CMYK mode. Black and white photographs should be saved in GRAYSCALE mode.
  • If creating CMYK process design please use process colors and not PMS spot colors.

  • This is my second order with PrintGlobe and I am very pleased all around. The online ordering process is extremely efficient and straight forward. My rep at the company is quick to see my order through and answer any questions that I have. They are in the US and speak my language literally and figuratively and are there to get me what I need. My pieces looked great and I plan on many future projects with this company. Thanks PrintGlobe!

  • Print Globe really bailed us out! We had a customer who slammed us with a difficult project that we couldn't fulfill in house, and our regular vendor was dragging his feet and couldn't even get us a hard price to tell our customer. Print Globe was able to create a solution for us and our customer and delivered on time and without complaints.

  • Price. Quality. Service. After 37 years in business, I've finally found a vendor who has all three. Wait! I just thought of one more - Variety. Now how can you beat four-out-of-four? I just love it when a printer makes my designs come to life and the client raves when they receive the final product. Thank you, PrintGlobe.
