 Pantone® Base Colors

You can now upgrade to any one our top five Pantone® Base colors for free!

Other Pantone and custom mixes are subject to a moderate additional flat rate of $35.

  • Please refer to a printed Pantone® Matching System (Uncoated Matte) swatchbook for accurate color samples.

  • Printed ink color will very likely not be as saturated or brilliant as swatches, due to the nature of letterpress printing. If you need highly saturated color, talk to us.

  • Also, note that letterpress is best with type and line-art. Solid coverage, areas of over 3/16" can be problematic... we will let you know if we have concerns regarding the printing of your design.

  • Please see the SlowPrint FAQ which provides important information, including our trade-terms and disclaimers!
