TOPIC: CMYK values for vinyls

CMYK values for vinyls 1 year 2 months ago #6160

I am frustrated with vinyls.
The way I work, I like to have a palette in Signlab that accurately shows the colours of the vinyls I use.
But Signlab has them built in you say! Not really, Signlab has been slow to introduce new vinyl palettes or update existing ones over the nearly 30 years I've been using it.
Also, I like to show CMYK values, when I send jobs to a printer, they usually require it.

The only vinyl I have found to really have their act together with this is Metamark (British..yea!!)They even had an iphone app with all the values (sadly discontinued).

My local suppliers no longer stock Metamark, so I have to use Avery 700, or Imageperfect 5700 etc for polymerics. None of these brands can even tell you what values are needed to recreate them in Signlab!! which I find staggering.

has this been the concern of anyone else? Has anyone found the secret in extracting this info from vinyl suppliers without using torture?
