Color Tolerance Sets

Color Standards That Set the Limits


The art and science of color matching involves a host of variables that often lead to a less than perfect match. In most cases, fortunately, a perfect match is not required, and would probably be very costly if it were. How much can a color vary, then, from its target and still be acceptable? And how can this information be communicated to those who need to know, such as suppliers and QA departments?

The color experts at Visual Color Systems can answer these questions. We first establish your primary target colors, then develop a realistic color range designed exclusively for each application. We also help integrate visual evaluation and color measurement to best suit established processes and systems. VCS Color Tolerance Sets provide the clearest and most precise color direction possible to put the control of your colors where it belongs - in your hands.
