Color Accuracy and Matching: Nimbus Printers is a GANG RUN printer. This means that jobs are printed on a large sheet with many other jobs of similar paper and quantity aesthetics. We will go to great lengths to match your colors as close as possible to transparencies, photos, or supplied electronic digital layouts that you supply. We view CMYK printed color by NAPL standards under a 5000K light source on press, but because of the limitations in the gang run printing process, such as the ink needs of other images placed on the same press sheet, we cannot guarantee to match color and density exactly, but print to very pleasing color standards. We accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted images and the actual artwork or product they represent. Our GANG RUN printing process is highly specialized using highly skilled craftsmen and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure quality is at its finest.

Online PDF proofs viewed by the customer on a computer monitor use a color space called RGB. RGB stands for red, green, blue which are the primary colors of light used to display color images on your monitor. Offset printing presses produce full color images using a four color ink process called CMYK. CMYK stands for Cyan (blue), Magenta (red), Yellow, and Black.

Nimbus Printers prints to a pleasing color standard through the use of standard ink densities. While RGB color may look good on a computer screen or desktop printer, it may not produce the results desired when printed on an offset printing press. This is due to the wide variations in color spaces, technologies, and calibrations of different displays and printing devices.
