I recently did some business cards, and despite using a Spyder4 to calibrate my monitor, and using the "view proof" CMYK setting, the printed cards came back very differently than the monitor colors.
To avoid this in the future, I want a pre-printed color guide book or swatches with corresponding CMYK values. Even better, would be a printed book or swatch collection with CMYK and Pantone spot colors.
With print media declining, I see more 4-color process (CMYK) options than Pantone spot printers available.
Can anyone suggest a CMYK color guide book that I can literally hold swatches up to the monitor and compare the colors?
