Pantone Cotton Passport, Planner or Chip Set?

With over 100 products in Pantone’s portfolio, it’s hard to know which ones will benefit you the most. Yes, there are specific products depending on what you work with e.g. plastics or textiles for example, but even then, there is still so much choice!

Don’t fret, we have picked out this month’s top products to help you with the decision process.

So which products made the cut this month? It was hard, but we have whittled it down to the following:

  • Cotton Passport
  • Cotton Planner
  • Cotton Chip Set

What’s so great about these products? Why did they make the cut? Read on to find out…

Pantone’s Cotton Passport

Retailing at just under £500, having access to ALL 2,310 colours in Pantone’s TCX range including the 210 new colours added in 2015, we believe that this is very good value for money.

Key features:

  • Easy identification of colours
  • Access to ALL 2,310 TCX colours in the range
  • Easily portable
  • Sorted in chromatic order for quick colour decisions

If you are a designer on the move, this passport is ideal as it can be taken to client consultations, vendor meetings, fashion shows, trade events etc. It can also be used in trendspotting and shopping.

Equally, if you work from a home office, small studio or satellite workspace, the Passport makes a handy compact companion to our larger format Pantone Color products.

Larger area of colour needed?

The chips in the Cotton Passport are 1.5cmx 1cm, if you require a larger area of colours then individual colour can be ordered as SMART swatches.

Pantone’s Cotton Planner

Slightly more expensive than the Passport the Cotton Planner retails at just under £750. It too contains ALL 2,310 TCX colours including the new 210 new colours added in 2015.

Why is it more expensive?

The planner is more expensive because it has more benefits:

  • Pages can be taken out
  • The chips are bigger (1.5cm x 1.5cm)
  • Both the Planner and Passport have an index, however the Planner has the TCX numbers and names whereas the Passport index only has numbers

Key features:

  • Easy identification of colours
  • Access to ALL 2,310 TCX colours in the range
  • Sorted in chromatic order and pages can be taken out for quick colour decisions
  • Easily portable
  • Bigger area of colour

The single, convenient desktop volume is perfect for small teams and freelancers and with a value price and a handy size it is ideal for entry level designers or as a quick reference companion to the larger format products.

Larger area of colour needed?

If you require a larger area of colour, again similar with the Cotton Passport individual colours can be ordered as SMART swatches.

Pantone’s Cotton Chip Set

This is the most expensive product of the 3 as the complete Cotton Chip Set is just under £1,600. Like the other two products, the chip set contains ALL 2,310 TCX colours including the new 210 new colours added in 2015.

Why is it more expensive?

The Cotton Chip Set is more expensive because like the Planner, it has more benefits:

  • The chips are much larger (2.5cm x 2.5cm)
  • The chips can be removed (and then easily returned) – this is great for putting together palettes and actually seeing what colours work well together.

Key features:

  • Easy identification of colours
  • Access to ALL 2,310 TCX colours in the range
  • Sorted in chromatic order, pages and chips can be taken out for quick colour decisions
  • The biggest area of colour for these 3 products
  • Bigger area of colour
  • The name and number identified for each unique colour (and on the back of each chip so they can be returned to the book!)

The Cotton Chip Set comprises two large, sapphire coloured binders for an elegant edition to any design room. Once the chips have been removed, the loose chips can then be used to formulate palettes of harmonising or contrasting colours.

Larger area of colour needed?

Again, if you require a larger area of colour, like the Passport and Planner individual colours can be ordered as SMART swatches.
