Color chart and color atlas are important implements
.... for production and design. We recommend storing color patterns and color references always in a dry and dark area. If cards and charts are exposed to the light for too long, they lose their gloss and color fastness. Then your color patterns won’t be firm for 100%.
We recommend renewing often used color code books, color charts and even the bound color atlas regularly every two years. Relevant complete original products and a competent advice can be obtained in a specialized trade.
