Good question....

I generally take a Pantone Spot to Process color book in and show them how all the colors shift (including theirs) during the CMYK print process.

I run into this with corporates all the time. They insist their logo color is PMS XXX and that the local printer can match it perfectly. I patiently try to explain that the printer has the option of pulling a can of PMS XXX blue ink off the shelf and printing that for their letterhead, business cards etc. because the print process is offset not process color. I show them that the process printer has four colors of ink to print with C,M,Y and K and must create their PMS color using these colors. I can usually find some process printed piece around their office and show them how their Pantone prints as process even on a piece done by the "home office". I do mention that we could add a spot color (making the run a 5 color job) which would cost more. Money considerations usualy out weigh picky buyer's demands when they discover that the home office accepted the color shift in the printing of their piece. :-)

Smart Axx question.....

If its called Lake Placid, how come there are waves on the lake?

Wouldn't it have been better to shot the lake when it was still?????

Haha. Funny question. Okay, here's a placid lake in Lake Placid. I used the texture from the old lake as a weak displacement map for the new lake to give it a small amount of ripple.

Make over... I like the yellow text. It's always been one of my favorite colors for advertising and promotional work.

We print 20,000 of these books and they get placed in racks at the Florida welcome stations. For that reason the name really needs to be at the top to be sure the name can be read (especially true if the racks are not acryllic).
