  • Color Plugin – Originally created for use with Adobe Illustrator design software, this Add-on helps prepress and creative designers to connect to Colibri’s central database and choose approved brand colors in addition to real color standards based on spectral color data necessary for use in their artworks. Designers have an option to work offline but it is necessary to re-connect to Colibri to get color data approval status.
  • Color Feasibility – This option is very helpful in predicting color consistency and feasibility in a variety of applications, technologies, and substrates in early stages of color specification. Based on real colorant data, this tool has been developed with user-friendly templates to simplify the color feasibility process at the very start of the development process.
