My client sent me a logo. I opened it in Illustrator to sample the color. I created the business card in indesign which included a color band of that color and the vector of the logo. It looked like the color  matched on my screen but when I looked at the pdf of the artwork they were different. I check the color formulsa and they were the same in the indesign but when I sampled the formula in illustrator on the pdf they were different. What is happening???!!!

A few questions to try and isolate the issue…

  1. Are you setting colours using specific RGB or CMYK numbers or are you sampling on screen using eye dropper tools?
  2. Do the files have an embedded colour profile?
  3. Are the files using different colour profiles?
  4. Are you using colour management within your programs?
