    Pantone makes the Color Cue. It should bring you into the neighborhood of where you need to be.

    Print a CMYK color chart on the material you will be using and match the paint color to the CMYK value.

    If it's a newer Roland with VersaWorks you may have the Roland Color System. This allows you to print custom charts and then have a custom color palette for your software. Then your customer can hold up the swatch book (which you print with your printer on your media) and they tell you color DP34-K is what they want, you can then go to your software and select that color from the color palette.

    Check out Roland's brochure for more info.
