    For my final assignment (corporate identity), I need the RAL color numbers and color numbers for vynil film.

    I've gotmy PMS colors! Where can i find the exact same color in RAL?
    Does anybody know a website with tables for which contain this information?

    thx a lot

    Looks like RAL is a a type of color matching system similar to PMS chips but mainly used for powder coating. Right?

    And what vinyl film are you looking for? Do you want translucent backlit as well as opaque (in case you want to light up your sign?). Lots of flavors for that and I'm not sure you got 3M or Avery products in Belgium. The only way we can match vinyl colors is to pull a PMS chip and look in a vinyl swatch book for a match. And in vinyl, close is good. Custom costs $$$ and you have to buy a full lot.

    Try a google search on the vinyl... but unless you luck out and Avery has those two colors as actual PMS stock you will need to get a chart. Go to a sign shop with your chips. Call em first and tell em you're a student. They should help you out if they aren't up to their arse in busy.

    Good luck on your project. Sounds like they are having you do the full, proper research for a Corporate Identity. I like that.

          Vector artwork in spot colours is sensible enough, but any shading you add would not be vector artwork by definition, and Illustrator in particular has problems with shading in spot colours.

          When asked a similar question years ago my boss said 'Just buy the biggest, fastest, latest thing you can afford because in 6 months it will be obsolete'.

          I would struggle to get it down to eight genres - I like all kinds of music but I dislike a lot of stuff for various reasons.

          Classical is another list.

          From this list you can...

          Are you set on a laptop? You get so much more for your money with a desktop. And I hate the thought of doing any kind of serious design work on such a tiny screen.

          But it depends on your...
