We work with third-party printers that we trust and in the rare case that there is a printing issue, we will work with the printers to get it resolved. Please note that some print materials may not show the exact same color that is showing up on your screen. This is due to the fact that each computer screen tint can be different across manufacturers. Any reprints required will not be at the expense of Marc Norsworthy & Co. We recommend providing (Hex #s) or Pantone colors if you need exact shades matched up.
CMYK, Pantone colors, printing responsibility
For the purpose of versatility we will supply your logo kit with files in different color modes such as RGB, CMYK, and may contain Pantone colors. (To learn more about these modes see our FAQ section.) When you are approving your logo on the computer monitor, you are only approving RGB colors. Computer screens can only reproduce RGB colors and only simulates other color modes. We do our best to match RGB colors on our computer screen to CMYK or Pantone colors, but it is physically impossible to find an exact match. When we convert your files in to different color modes (CMYK, Pantone) we hold no responsibility for matching exactly your approved RGB colors. It is the clients’ responsibility to double-check and make sure the printer gets the right color. When printing in CMYK process the printed colors may vary. This is due to a non-standardized color pallet used by this process printers, and calibration of the machine. Therefore Marc Norsworthy & Co. is removing all the responsibilities for the outcome of the printing quality and colors.
