What is the CMYK breakdown of your colour swatches?

Our displayed swatches have been optimised by our team for the best colour results on our corrugated cardboard stocks. You will see that white and brown have very different colour palettes, this is designed and tested to deliver the best printed results. The white cardboard colours are bright and the brown cardboard palette is far more organic in nature.

The CMYK breakdowns below are based on PANTONE Coated matches.

Please note: Matching a print colour to a RGB screen colour is not recommended.
Always use a PANTONE chart where available or seek technical advice.
