Pantone Colors

Picking the right color.

The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another. The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a proprietary color space used in a variety of industries, primarily printing, though sometimes in the manufacture of colored paint, fabric and plastics. The Pantone color guides have been widely adopted and are used by artists, designers, printers, manufacturers, marketers and clients in all industries worldwide for accurate color identification, design specification, quality control and communication. The below chart is intended as a reference guide only. The Pantone colors here have been matched as closely as possible. Another note is that while we do have the ability to use specific Pantone colors in our offset printing, if a job requires digital printing it will be converted to it's four color process (CMYK) version.
