Copic Markers Releasing Color Chips for Accurate Color Throughout Entire Design Process

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Between incorporating their color library into Autodesk’s Sketchbook Pro and providing drool-worthy retail displays, Copic is stepping up their marker game even further with the upcoming release of 288 color chips. Featuring matte or gloss on curved and flat surfaces, the new chips will be highly-beneficial for better envisioning your product before you even put the ink to the paper.

Communicating Accurate Surface Color

Specifically made for plastic-based product designs, the soon-to-be-released 288 piece color chip system from Copic was designed to help provide more accurate color communication between designers and manufacturers.

Whether car paint, footwear components, or general finishes, material and color samples generally don’t exist in the consumer market outside of the house paint section at Home Depot. This smart move by Copic will allow designers at the consumer level to better communicate their concepts to those who make their final product, while also giving professional designers an added tool to have accurate color throughout their entire design process:

While the official release date is yet to be known, Copic has a notification sign-up for when the chips are released.
