    Just a friendly reminder to about the scans… Everyone’s monitor will be different, so even if John color corrects them to a calibrated screen, you’ll still need to add a reminder on the website =)

    • Yes, definitely a great and necessary reminder! I know so often people come in and say, ‘oh, that’s what the ink looks like!’ because it can sometimes be hard to get the true colour value on a screen. Thanks so much for your tip!

    5 J Herbin Rouge Hematite
    6 R&K Sepia
