True colors

I have been preparing to print off some new high fidelity Polynesia cards for a talent show. It has been quite a task, but I did discover a way to mass modify the color profile of cards.

With imagemagick installed you call:
mogrify -format tif -colorspace CMYK -profile ISOcoated_v2_300_eci.icc *.png

Which converts the source pngs to tiffs with the chosen color profile (drivethrucards requires a profile that has less than 300% ink coverage, so this is necessary.)

Here is an after and before of a farm:

After that, I had to use scribus to build a pdf out of them, and then I could upload them to get them printed. I don't yet know when they will arrive, but hopefully it will be before the show.
