  • 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.

      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?

          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.
