    i am in search for a dark pantone maroon....basically a one color print. i am having a hard time finding one dark enough. i am wondering if i need to go to full color and mix it myself. any suggestions on good maroons...and then finding it in the countless swatches.

    1817 is pretty dark. Also try 7421.

    If they aren't dark enough, set it as one of those for now, find a paint chip or a sample of the maroon you want from somewhere else and ask the printer to match your sample colour.

    When does a maroon become a brown???

    That sounds like the first line for a joke...

        If you are only using 1 colour, you should charged for 1 colour.

        You might be charged for mixing a custom colour. We don't charge more when we have to match a colour to a sample, but who knows, it's more work, so they are entitled to charge if you are fussy about a colour.

          i suggested for the client to go by a print store and look at their pantone color swatches so he can see how they print. pantone is always one color right?

            1 Pantone colour is 1 colour when printing offset.

            ...If they happen to print digitally or on their printer at home, the colour will convert to CMYK and therefore be 4 colour.

              I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

              Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

              I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

              These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

              I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

              Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
              Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.

              The fee still works out to about...
