It's All About The Details – Color Reproduction
Color reproduction is one part of the production process that is a mix of alchemy and technology, a segment that Verge Sport has invested to be sure that the kit you order today matches exactly from jersey to shorts panels, and furthermore matches the jersey or jacket you order down the line. Every one of the dozens of fabrics we use to create the Verge Sport line reproduces color on a slightly different spectrum, with natural variations in ink lots introducing another element of variability. Without particular effort towards color matching across fabrics and inks it's a recipe for inconsistent team colors and branding — something our art department works tirelessly to avoid.
As each fabric batch is introduced we create a physical color palette to be used as reference going forward, with inks calibrated to match our master color palette by spectrometer. With each new custom design to come through for production color output is checked against the physical palette for the specified fabric, and adjusted as needed to match at a precision beyond what the human eye can detect. While it is a time consuming step to continually produce color palettes and check each design by spectrometer, it allows Verge Sport to be the standard bearer in consistent colors across custom production orders. No matter the fabric used in each garment we will deliver matching pieces — jerseys, jackets, bibs, gloves, etc — it's all about the details.
