Transform your design, Color Choices

As with fonts, viewing distance is a key consideration when choosing your colors. Pick a background color that contrasts nicely with the text and graphic elements to ensure that viewers can read your banner or sign easily. Another trick is to keep the color scheme simple; in most cases, two or three colors will suffice. However, if you’re making something that people will stop to read—like a movie or event poster—you can definitely use a broader palette.


Another mistake that people make regarding coluor is that they neglect to set their design software to CMYK mode rather than the RGB color space. RGB features more colors, but printers use CMYK colors. Using CMYK ensures that you’ll have more accurate color rendition when you make the large­ scale print. If you’re using Photoshop, choose “Image > mode > CMYK color” to switch over.


Choose the right colours for the materials that you are working with. Acrylic pictures require more lights while canvas prints can be mounted in a dark room. At PicsAlive, colours is a huge part of what gives the tone and the feeling in a picture.

Everyday, millions of square feet of vinyl is used in short and long term graphics in Toronto alone.

We have developed an entirely new process to bring in environmentally friendly ink from one end and bio-degradable material from the other end.

With the new inventions in paint technology (no VOC), the wall surfaces are less and less accepting of various types of paper and vinyl. We have developed a technique to “wash the wall” without effecting the paint quality that prepares the wall for accepting our paper material.
