  • RAL color library for Illustrator?

    Is there a RAL color library for Illustrator?

    Also, does anyone know if you can pad print using RAL colors?

    And you can pad print with RAL with thick or thin steel or polymer.

      Eugene your link is good for Illustrator 4 through CS1...

      You have to ask the printer if they can mix RAL colors. If not, you may have to provide swatches to be converted to PMS or check with a spectrophotometer.

        From the looks of it, you have to purchase the electronic RAL swatch library?

          198 Euros at the link I gave you to RAL's site.
          Is it worth it to you?
          Assuming you can figure out the German descriptions for the Mac and Windows machines.
          I'd check on the printer first... RAL doesn't seem to sell mixing inks like Pantone does...
          We only get those numbers here for Powder Coating.

            MarComm and just plain Comm are considered two separate fields too. Still can't figure out why.
            There seems to be a very tenuous line drawn at the manufacturing/visual boundary.
            Could be that...

            All true, but it's also part of the reason I think it's a very broad area. Continue through Walmart to the receiving docks and stockrooms at the back of the store where everything is still freight-boxed...

            Communication design is broader in scope because it uses elements that aren't graphics like audio, video, copywriting, performance, marketing, etc in addition to using graphics.

            Just walking down the toy or housewares aisle in a Walmart or a tour through a video game store would show you nearly every package design using raster artwork. Even a lot of the simplest of packaging...
