  • color numbers PMS -> RAL

    Hi,

    I'm a graphic design student from Belgium, and i'm new here!

    Can anybody help out please?
    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?

    one color ->different numbers!

    my colors (pantone 280CV & pantone 123CV)

    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.

          As is, it looks ok.

          Just a few notes:

          There's too much contrast between the colors. The black overpowers the cyan.

          Given the size of the gorilla and text underneath...

          Not sure what you're looking for with this. You've given us nothing in the way of reasons for bringing it into existence.
