You might have experienced confusion when choosing a CMYK color combination from a previously-printed glossy brochure to match that same color on a new project that prints on uncoated paper. The color usually turns out differently when switching paper surfaces, from coated to uncoated paper.
That's why Tintbooks makes both Coated and Uncoated CMYK Color Guides. In fact, each Tintbook Uncoated Volume demonstrates side-by-side examples of how the same CMYK formula differs when printed on Coated vs. Uncoated paper. These printed examples are invaluable for explaining color choices to your client.
A variety of commonly-used uncoated paper samples are also compared, each printed with the same CMYK combinations.
You will discover how color changes e.g., from a smooth to felt finish.
Paper shades and surfaces affect final printed color results. You can't see these variations on a digital proof. Work with your Uncoated Tintbook to achieve accurate matches between the many paper substrates that are available.
