If you have questions concerning "Image Color Specifications" call: 413-258-2501

Color proofs are not required. Due to differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between hard copy or electronic color proofs and the completed job is to be expected. When variation of this kind occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance.
