    Can't say for sure but you might want to print a Spectratone swatch of Dark Grey on Dark Grey or Dark Grey on Spot Black.

    I have one I would sell ... but it would be pretty pricey.

    The problem with the book is that it becomes less and less useful as new colors are released and, in particular, with the ability in later versions of Omega to use percentage fills for either layer of color. In addition, Omega has built in color matching that will suggest various Spectratone combinations from vinyl palettes, Pantone palettes, etc. So, for example, the following is suggested as the best match for 220 Charcoal vinyl in order of how close it would be:


    1. Spot Brown on Spot Aqua
    2. Spot Brown on Spot Peacock Blue
    3. Spot Brown on Spot Green
    4. Spot Brown on Spot Dark Green
    5. Spot Brown on Spot Dark Grey

    From this you would then print swatches on your Edge to see first hand how close a match it is.

    Isn't there an onboard program to print your own spectratone chart? I remember we did it when we first got our edge, just not sure how.

    Yes. I forgot about that. Here's a link to a video that demonstrates it.
