Color Matching & Separation

Print accurate reproductions of all CMYK-compatible colors. Scanning alone will get you most of the way there, plenty of clients are happy with the results. But there are occasions where color matching is a core concern and this is why we recommend our color separation services, which bring a whole new dimension to the art of color matching.

Color Variants

Our designers isolate each color of your wallpaper onto separate layers of a Photoshop document, making it fast and easy to create alternate colorways.

Color Books

For projects where color matching is critical, we recommend standardized color systems, like Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams and more.

NOTE: Not all colors or finishes can be scanned and/or reprinted. Artwork with metallic/fluorescent inks will be converted into CMYK. Your mileage may vary when scanning specialty images or spot colors.

High Definition Digital Scanners

Difference Between Drum Scanners & Cruse Scanners

The main difference between drum scanning and Cruse scanning is the method of scanning. Drum scanning rotates the wallpaper sample while the scanner head remains stationary, while Cruse scanning moves the scanner head across the stationary artwork. Cruse scanners, on the other hand, use a scanning device mounted on an automated arm, making it better suited for scanning flat, textured surfaces, such as fabrics, wallpaper, and tiles.

The choice between these two scanning methods depends on the specific requirements of the project, such as the size,texture, and level of detail required. Our scanning professionals decide which approach to use on a a case-by-case basis
