Class content

You will learn just enough about color theory and profile creation using sound color management practices to understand how these topics impact spot color creation.

The choices you make with settings and other factors in your design applications (like Flexi) greatly impact how your named spot colors are reproduced in print. We’ll cover best practices for setting color management settings in Flexi and other design apps.

You will be run through the process of creating a named spot color for production use.

Flexi’s Production manager makes it easy to get your print with spot colors and we will walk you through that process.


  • This is a beginner to intermediate course so everyone who is interested in learning the principles of Flexi as well as learn a few new techniques are welcome to the course.
  • This is a live online virtual class held on Zoom, so you’ll need a computer with a mic and camera to fully participate.
  • It is recommended that you have the most recent (V21) Flexi software. We can provide a 7-day demo license of Flexi 21 for anyone who would like to try the latest version after the class.
