However, we will not reprint if there is only small color shade deviation. Even you have provided us a color pantone code, there will still be around 10% color tolerance. This color tolerance is acceptable in this industry due to various reasons like model of computer or the screen brightness. Moreover, all silkscreen printing pantone colors are hand stir by human. Hence, the tolerance is acceptable in this printing industry.
