  • Should my file be designed using CMYK or RGB color palette?

    All files should be designed and uploaded in CMYK. It is recommended to use GRACoL2006_Coated1v2, our preferred color profile, for better color accuracy. If you upload a file in RGB, the color will be converted into CMYK and may not be as accurate.

    As a good rule of thumb, if your file contains large quantities of blues and purples, it may be best to limit magenta hues in the design by at least 10%. For more information on how to get the blue, black, dark red or other colors for print, please refer to RGB vs. CMYK.
