It seems like a simple process: You have an idea for a t-shirt, so you gather together your mixing pigments and bases, pull out your custom ink mixing formula and put them together to create the perfect color for your design. In fact, it turns out so awesome that you want to make another one! But, when you go back and mix up the same custom ink mixing formula again, you find it’s not the same color

Why does the same color look different each time you do custom ink mixing?

One of the reasons this happens is not having an accurate enough scale for mixing custom inks. Having a scale for mixing ink and custom Pantone™ colors will help to ensure that your print is the same perfect color of red, every time.

Check out this video and listen to Andy Eclov from Pirate Ninja Print Shop explain the importance of using a scale that is accurate to the 100th of a gram when mixing custom Pantone colors.
