Our very own color library for direct inks (fluors). Here you have:

  • PDF with this color library.
  • ASE and ACB file for Illustrator.
  • CSV with direct ink combinations for Y*M*, for nS9 and nS∆.
  • CSV with direct ink combinations for HF (equivalent), for nS9 and nS∆.


We just have to load it into our library and load and print the PDF with all the substitutions.
