About color consistency
Even when you opt for Pantone colors, achieving color consistency
across the supply chain can be tricky business. If you don’t have a color management platform
in place yet, Esko’s Color Engine
is definitely worth the investment. It ensures all stakeholders work with the same color data at all times, and even predicts exactly how the color will react to the different substrates you select.
