    Our color guide is old and we are needing to new ones for correct referencing.

    Where do yall suggest getting these from?
    Called Orafol and they will not send them directly,
    Tried contacting Fellers and they want to charge for these color guides.....

    We're just a two-man shop in the middle of Central Illinois. I called to have our Oracal sales rep stop by the shop after we bought our printer and he had no problem coming through when he was in the area. He gave us samples of media and at least one copy of every guide they have including a color fan, which is way more convenient than the guide books. I think they actually like taking a break from the normal routine and stopping by shops from time to time, even a small shop like ours.

    Aside from that, the obvious answer is trade shows. Every time we go to a trade show, we grab every color chart we can. I don't remember the last time we actually had to pay for a color guide.

    Call Oracal again and someone should be able to send you some. I got a few books from them a while back... maybe you just need to talk to someone else?

    I wish I could figure out who you are so I could get you a set of Color Charts.

    Yes - Send me your mailing info and I will send you one. Sam.featherston@orafol.com or you can pick one up at the Printing United show coming up in a couple of weeks in Dallas.

    Just be aware that if you have older books, the new ones have separated materials into different books
    * Sign Vinyl
    * Reflective Vinyl
    * Wrap Film
    * Adhesive Tapes

    So double-check what you are needing to be updated
