  • CMYK to NCS

    Hi ppl,

    I am doing an interior work for a particular brand and I need o come oup with a paint colour for the walls. I have the brand colour but only in CMYK.

    The paint company told me to provide the colour in N.C.S, or R.A.L. B.S., Mansel shades etc.

    Can anyone tell me how I could translate these colours?

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew.

    This is WAY outside of my area of expertise -- but couldn't you just bring in a pantone swatch and have them color match it?

    Or, alternatively, can you get swatches from them that you can match to your stuff?
    You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on. --GWB

        You'll have to convert CMYK to RGB first...
        Or:

            Depends on the 'painter'.

            R.A.L. is powder coating. Limited palette.

            I'm not sure what the original poster is trying to do other than attempt to match CMYK values to a chip color. Not usually successful. Easier if they contact the brand owner and ask for a PMS color (a simple phone call may do the trick). Most paint systems can come close to PMS. If you want exact, you have to find someone who does custom mixing and knows how to do it without depending on the shot machine.

            ps - that's Munsell btw.

              The fonts are different. Were you able to get the same typeface that was used on the originals? I think it would make them look even more consistent, like they were designed at the same time, if you can...
