At Vintage 99, we welcome press checks and we welcome you
in to see what we do best. Unlike most printers that focus only
on matching the supplied color in order to get a sign off and
keep the press running, at a Vintage 99 press check, we print
the target color/s and also a lighter version and a darker version
to provide you with more options. Very often we find making one
or more of the colors lighter or darker improves the overall look so
our clients get to see more options and compare these options side
get the details right every time
Vintage 99 offers press checks to make sure your label comes out just as you envisioned. Usually, a press check offers an on-site proofing opportunity to ensure the label looks exactly as you visualized when printed. This is the step where most reputable printers check the color accuracy, paper quality and other specifications before the labels are printed for delivery.
At Vintage 99, we go two steps further.
When a client or designer comes to press check a label, we show them that we have matched the PMS color or CYMK percentages in their artwork, which is standard in the industry. Next, we not only print the target color/s but also a lighter version and a darker version for comparison purposes. We show this to the designer or client and so that they can see the color they chose along with 2 additional options. This allows you to see quickly what an alternate version would look like and make a more informed choice.

“Many times we find that making one or more of the colors lighter or darker improves the overall look the client was going for and by planning for this ahead of time, they get to see more options and compare these options side by side. It helps them know they have made the best choice and the label is the best it can be. This is built into our process so that it is ready to look at in person when the client/designer arrives to the press check.”
