Solutions For Supply Chain Partners

Your customers instruct you about the design and the colors they require. It is important to deliver products that meet and exceed the customers’ requirements and to deliver products with consistent colors and minimal metamerism. With our products and services we support you in achieving this.

What we deliver

If our Certified Color Standard is used, you receive:

  • A combination of a visual reference fabric
  • A digital standard file (QTX file).

With the visual reference we provide a color standard that is dyed on a selected substrate using robust formulas produced with globally available, environmentally-friendly dyes from DyStar.

The digital standard, which is distributed in a QTX file, is the spectral data—or thumbprint—of the color. Within that file we provide the specific dye formulas and the measurement conditions of your customer. The QTX file is available for you within seconds of receiving the order for physical color standard. The file works with your dye-formulation software to save money and time that you would otherwise need to do lab dips and get the color approval from your customer. The QTX file may also be used as a reference in your quality control system to quickly get the delta information of your sample compared to the color standard.

Many of our Brand and Retail accounts report a 50% reduction in the number of lab dips or bulk submission required to achieve color approval.

  • Fast shipping of the certified standards
