After you take this eye candy test, please post your number and/or colors that are troublesome. It would be fly, if you could try this test on two different computers and then post results. I was a 27, blue hues didn’t work out too well for me…(pressed for time, sleep, needy children, snow (again….duh…Minnesota) I’m looking forward to a re-match with my computer…..survey says??
I’m new to Ladies of Letterpress, so I hesitate, but this was an interesting (if blinding) exercise. I scored a zero – perfect color acuity. Very much appreciated the original post – thanks for sharing it. I’ve been just sort of eye balling and guessing when mixing inks, so it was good to have it validated that there’s not a precise science for letterpress like there is offset.
I got a 19. I’m not very good in the greens and blues on the monitor. I wonder how we would do with printed color chips? And thanks for the link to ink mixing. It is a good answer to a discussion question I had posted last week (?) (time flies).
I got a 4 too, my 4 misses were in the indigo area. I’m going to try again when I get home on my nice big iMac and see if monitor quality makes a difference (the one at the school where I work is crappy :D)
Are there any Laddies of Letterpress that want to try this and chime in? It would be interesting to see if there is a difference between the Ladies and Laddies. I’m going to venture a guess that the reds are harder for the gentlemen.
