Is it possible to reprint a few graphic panels after an exhibition without changing the design and colours that were there on the original panels?
Reprinting a few graphic panels individually based on the original design and colour scheme is possible but not advisable. There are certain technical reasons for it. The ink deposits of each print run varies and is not exactly the same as a previous run, minute differences in colour will always be there.
- Colours fade on exposure to sunlight, UV rays and artificial lights. If by chance the colours on the new panel are matched a 100%, there will be some colour variation between the new panel and the existing older panels.
- The substrate used for the graphics as well as the laminates used in the finishing process vary in each production run, this leads to minute colour variations on different batches of graphics.
- Our digital printing machines are regularly refurbished and software is upgraded, sometimes older printers are replaced with new ones, this also leads to colour variations in different print runs.
