I ventured in to mixing Nazdar 2700 for sticker printing with no idea what I was doing and ended up with a big old tub of gross army green/olive that I’m trying to now use up where I can. Here’s my new process to save you a head ache in the future and save you some $$$.
Nazdar 2700 is a water based ink and Matsui NEO pigments are designed for water based ink so they seem like they should be perfect for each other and are relatively inexpensive compared to other color matching systems.
Quart containers with lids
Nazdar 2700 clear over print
Nazdar 2700 super opaque white
Matsui starter NEO pigment kit
Head over to Matsui CMS page to get your formula. I wanted to mix up some neon pink for a 2 color sticker that mimics a neon sign (still in the design stage).
Start with clear since you need the most.
Add a little pigment. WARNING: THIS SHIT GETS EVERYWHERE SO GET TOPS FOR THEM OR PREPARE TO CLEAN.
Some white to round off the Neon Pink.
Mix it on up.
Double check it in the light.
Label it with the (wrong) code, color and date you mixed.
This is actually supposed to be PMS 806 but I wrote down 802 since I thought about doing neon green. I’ll fix it when I get a chance but it’s Friday so I’d rather relax a little bit.
