PMS colors
Last Updated: 04/28/2014
PMS colors are recommended for all critical colors. When a PMS color is used in the artwork, we print using the CMYK values from Pantone's Plus Series Color Bridge (coated).  These values are the mixture that Pantone has determined best represent the solid spot color (not an exact match).  If it is necessary to MATCH a color to the swatch book, a color match and printed proof must be ordered. If it is necessary to match to a color in an existing printed marketing piece, that piece must be shipped in and a color match and printed proof must be ordered for this as well.
