  • What are PMS Ink Colors?

    PMS (Pantone Matching System®) is the standard color matching system used by printers to specify a particular ink color. Every ink color has its own individual PMS number. For example, if you specify PMS 186 Red, we will know exactly what shade of red you want. Please tell us the PMS number of each ink color that you are requesting on your product if you are not using our standard colors.

  • What are your Standard Ink Colors?

    Standard ink colors shown below. If you require a non-standard ink color, there is a $40.00 charge for each non-standard ink color that you select. If you have any questions, please contact a customer service representative.

To help you make a decision, we can provide you with a blank sample or a sample with a random imprint. In the vast majority of cases, there is no charge for samples. On certain high value promotional items, our vendors may charge us for a sample in which case we will pass that charge on to you. Requests for samples should be sent to us via email at staff@minespress.com or faxed to us at 914-788-1698. Please include the following information: • The description, color and quantity of the items (3 maximum) that you are requesting. • Your billing and shipping address. • Your name, email address, phone and fax number. • The date that the sample is required. • Your shipping account number (i.e. UPS shipper number) if available.
