The InTuneGP Full Color Print Process
Disclaimer: Please note that due to a variety of monitor settings, the color swatches and your artwork, as seen on your monitor, may slightly vary from the actual printed color. Read below for further details about the InTuneGP full color print process.
Our Process: Our full color process is a 4 color + white CMYK process. As mentioned above, it is important to understand that with so many different monitor settings, the colors you see within your image on your computer, may slightly vary in shade when printed on a guitar pick. We do include a layer of white ink under each image to help insure consistency when going from pick color to pick color and to allow us to print your image on very dark backgrounds like black.
Understanding CMYK: When you create an image on your computer for printing it is normal to think that the colors seen on the screen will look the same when printed. The issue is that the computer screen and many editing programs show colors in RGB mode, while images are printed in the CMYK (Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Black) format. Sometimes the conversion from RGB to CMYK works without any problems, However in some cases, there will be noticeable differences between the shades of color. Our Full Color templates are provided in CMYK to help avoid any surprises with these shade differences. However, please keep in mind, your monitor can still give you a slightly altered shading due to its RGB standards. RGB has a greater range of colors than CMYK and can produce colors that are more vivid and vibrant. These colors are beyond the range of CMYK to reproduce and will come out a bit darker in print than what is seen on your monitor.
