Merry Christmas from Color Confidence

Well, before the world ends, there’s just enough time to wish you all happy Christmas!

This will be our last blog post of 2012, so a big thanks to all those loyal readers that have subscribed to us over the last 12 months, and to all those who read our posts with interest.

We’ll be taking a more technical help angle for 2013; reviewing products, product comparisons and buying guides, as well as explaining how the somewhat complex world of colour management is actually pretty simple and hugely beneficial to your work.

Enjoy the holiday season, we’re off to get some strong coffee after the entertaining Color Confidence Christmas do last night.

See you in 2013 (hopefully) – we’ll be getting the year off to a flyer by attending London SWPP in January. Stay tuned for more details…
