Colour Variance

  • Due to circumstances beyond our control, we cannot guarantee exact colour matches. This holds true for the same design on multiple products and on repeat orders.

Colour Registration

  • Our tolerance can be as great as 1/16″, depending on the item. This is considered acceptable.

Adhesive/Non-Adhesive Note Pad & Cube Guidelines:

Type Sizes – Please stick to these guidelines when typesetting on:

Cube Top Sheets Cube Sides

Color Matching on Note Pads

  • Please note that these note pads are printed in 4 colour process, also known as CMYK colour model.
  • All Pantone/spot colours will be converted to the closest 4-colour process match. An exact pantone match is not available and cannot be certain. If close matches are desired, please indicate a spot colour on your purchase order. We will do our best to match it.
  • If colour is critical, a preproduction sample is available at an additional cost.
  • In addition, all graphics in RGB colour model will be converted to CMYK.

Color Matching on Cube Sides

  • The sides on Jay-Line Cubes are printed 4-color process as opposed to spot color. All Pantone colours will be converted to 4 colour process. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee a perfect match.
  • Due to the printing and assembly process of cubes, the imprint colors on the bound side may look slightly different than the other 3 sides.
  • On adhesive note cubes, the adhesive may slightly alter the appearance of the artwork.
  • Please keep in mind that no two cubes are the same and artwork will vary slightly from cube to cube.

Borders, Graphics, and Overspray on Cube Sides

Good Better Best
·   With full bleed of several colours, overspray may occur and reduce the quality of your product. ·   A common border will reduce the overspray effect and give your cube full bleed. ·   For best results, keep all logos and graphics free standing, away from the edge.

Individualized Packaging

  • Shrink-wrapping is available for individual cubes at additional cost. Call for quote.
