    not sure what profile you using but i have found that an rgb setting of r-0 g-0 b-158 seems to mimick a nice saphire blue in flexi

    Is the art work you created in Corel vector art? What format are you exporting as from Corel? Are you working in RGB or CMYK color mode? Why aren't you designing in Flexi?

    If at all possible, I suggest keeping your Corel art in vector form an exporting as an .eps. Or you can simply design in Flexi.

    Try this. Set up a CMYK color 100/20/0/0 and print the swatch. Try adding Magenta slowly to the mix until you reach your desired Cobalt Blue. You may want to add a bit of Black, too.
