Calibrate Your Monitor: There are online tutorials and software programs available that will allow you to calibrate your monitor to press. In the end, this step will save you time and money during the proof and revision processes.
Color Match Software: Free and purchased software is available, offering a multitude of color swatches that match any scheme color.
Swatch Organization: On the back of each swatch is an ICC (International Color Code) number. This code allows you to catalog your swatches, resulting in easy access for future design reference.
Request a Proof: Online proofs are not color accurate, even if your computer is calibrated. A hard copy proof will ensure color accuracy and is recommended when color accuracy is critical. However a hard copy proof will slow your online printing process.
