Pantone LLC Announces Enhanced CMYK Guides

The CMYK Guides offer more colours to choose from, with 1889 coated colours that do not match any existing Pantone Formula Guide Coated colour, and 1653 unique uncoated colours that do not match any existing Pantone Formula Guide Uncoated colour. The company has announced that CMYK Coated and Uncoated Guides will now be available printed using G7® calibration, making them achievable at almost any print provider in the world.

The CMYK Guides are an ideal way to visualise, communicate and control colours for type, logos, borders, backgrounds and other treatments. It is printed to the G7 technical standard, using CRPC reference press spaces for #1 coated and uncoated paper to the G7 Colourspace conformance level. In addition, colours that already match main Pantone colours will be marked so that unique colours can be identified with ease.

‘By marking the unique colours, designers can find colours ‘in-between’ traditional Pantone Graphics colours, and because the Guides are printed CMYK, all the colours are achievable on a modern printing press or digital press,’ explained Lou Prestia, Senior Product Manager at Pantone.

Text weight paper is used to match popular print specifications, and includes colour index, lighting evaluation tool and design software. Pantone is the only internationally recognised colour communication system, allowing users to specify Pantone colours with confidence even whether manufacturing is close to home or half a world away. The CMYK Guides are available now.
