    Im doing return address labels to be put on an ivory colored envelope. They want the background to match the envelope!
    Before I go printing a ka-zillion differnt colored boxes to get a close match on an ivory... does anyone have anything they have use in the past so I can at least begin there???

    I have at least 20 different shades of ivory envelopes in my sample box.....Probably best to start with a sample from your client.....

    I'm obviously doing these for a printing company and they gave me a sample. Will it help if I give you brand name? Is that on the envelopes in your sample box?

    Thanks all. My customer just emailed that it is covering up existing text and "close" will be good enough. I can do that!
    What would we do without S101!!! Hats off this site and thanks again for the speedy reply.

    "Close" is one of those terms that may mean something different to you and your client....A few years ago I had a client order some key tags and asked for gold....I gave him a metallic gold and he wanted a gold closer to the Edmonton Eskimos which I called yellow.....

    personally, i dont think its possible to match the color of an envelope with a printed background. best thing to do would be pull the printed background out of the art and use the envelope as the background

    Or just take the envelopes to a print shop and have them actually printed ;)
