Color Passport: because colour is more than just a ink formula
CIELab can define and store any colour. But colour is more, it evokes emotions, colours combine and resonate with other colours and colours are interpreted differently in different cultures. Color Passport endeavours to code all specifics of one colour so that the user, from designer to printer, knows more about colour and the transformation to a different printing technique, country or culture becomes a lot simpler.
Color Passport has done this for 7810 colours based on the CIELab 1976 standard. If you would like to know more about Color Passport, visit the Color Passport website.
