Exclamation Question for retouching/print professionals

I am currently working on images that contain a neon color.

The client has given me this color information :

Volt = 71R , Black = OOA

Can anyone please explain what this information means?

Thankyou for your time!

Re: Question for retouching/print professionals

The 1st color is not a technical standard. However Estee Lauder makes a Pure Gloss called Violet 71 Rebellious.
Hewlett Packard makes a black printer cartridge called 00A.
However, it might be more appropriate to request additional info from your client as those are not standad colors suc as the ones defined by Pantone or any color space.

Re: Question for retouching/print professionals

I agree with Murray. The client seems to have given you mismatched, generic color descriptions. Certainly no color model I am familiar with. the 00A is actually a Hex value you can type within your color picker window - and it is a dark black-ish tone, but I wouldn't trust it. 71R I can't find anywhere - not even in Adobe Illustrator's extensive color libraries. I would ask your client for clarification. Maybe they are paint chips?
