Color Analysis

Color may seem obvious and easy to describe for some, but in reality it is a very complex issue.

The average human eye sees millions of colors. How colors are perceived depends on the observer, the object, and the light source. So how does one communicate color in an accurate, meaningful way? By measuring values that everyone in the trade will understand. Lightness, Chroma, Hue, L*a*b, and ΔE are all universal values individuals can understand and communicate, regardless of where they are in the world.

Esprix Impressions has the tools and scientists that can determine these values and assist you in the projects where color control is an essential priority. Whether it is basic color matching or creating a custom printer profile with a wide gamut, you will find the help you need at Esprix Impressions.
