Why CWB Ink?

CWB inks are custom engineered simulated process and color matching inks developed for the CWB simulate process color separations and printing method. No other inks will prove to be more accurate for your color printing purposes.

CWB color, color separations and ink are based on an actual scientific color model developed for ease of use and color reproduction accuracy. CWB inks have been specifically developed for the closets possible matches to the color points used in the CWB simulated process color separation and printing process.

The CWB color model, color separations and ink follow the logical color points for color division and the reproduction of color at the highest level of accuracy. Based on the chart above CWB is based on the foundation of the visible spectrum of light. Then through the introduction of black and white any colors, tints, shades or tones can be accurately reproduced.

CWB Ink Color VS Other Ink Colors

Image Image
CWB ink colors are the closest matches we could achieve to the correct color points based on the correct division points in the visible spectrum of light. Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue and Magenta. From these colors the rest of color in the spectrum can most accurately be reproduced. Resulting in highly accurate color simulation, matching and printing.

Other Ink Colors Such as Pantone

Image
Notice that with the Pantone color matches for CWB color the colors are different. The red seems to have a bit of orange, the yellow looks darker, the cyan looks more like turquoise, the blue is darker and the magenta looks closer to rose. If the ink colors are incorrect color simulation will also be incorrect. For example, it is not possible to get cyan from turquoise. Additionally, the way in which the colors are incorrect will also effect the color blending. This results in inaccurate simulation of the colors blending between the color points resulting in further inacurracy.

The Results of Incorrect Colors

In the above chart, that represents the foundation of the visible spectrum of light with tints, shades and tones elements. The accurate color is replaced with Pantone color matches. Notice what has happened to the color across the spectrum of color.

For example, cyan is now the turquoise color and effects all the color that is blending from the green to cyan to the blue. The darker yellow has affected the blend into green resulting in the lime being incorrect. Violet now looks like a dark purple. Magenta looks more like rose and rose looks more like red.

At first glace looking at close colors one would think this will work but when it comes to simulated process and color simulation, accurate color is the key to accurate color simulation and the best printing and color matching results.

Side by Side Comparison

Image

Comparing the two images above. It is clear that if the colors used to reproduce color threw a process of color simulation are not accurate then accurate color reproduction is not possible. As seen in the image on the right.

All color is derived from the foundation of the spectrum of color that comes from light. If the foundation of the color is not correct then inaccuracy will realized through out the color printing process.
