Using the OutdoorINK Color Map for DesigningUpdated a year ago

 

COLOR MAPS

Our Color Maps, Omnicolor Solids and OutdoorINK print systems are optimized for RGB printing with the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 Color Profile. Your artwork will be converted to that color space and profile for printing. 

Please note, while you can upload artwork with other profiles, or in other color spaces, we cannot guarantee consistent, accurate results.

*For Photoshop - Selecting the Working sRGB IEC61966-2.1 Color Profile will result in the same profile output as standard sRGB IEC61966-2.1 Color Profile. 

 

USING OTHER SOFTWARE?

We will continue to add instructions for other design software, but in the meantime, please consult the help documentation of your software for instructions on how to set color profiles. 

Be sure to check our Public RGB Files for digital copies of the color map, downloadable color palettes, and a breakdown of all the RGB codes available on the map.
