The Pantone Graphics & Prints range is based on the Pantone Matching System® (PMS). Graphic artists use this range for printing, packaging and graphic or brand design. The heart of the Pantone Matching System (PMS) is solid colour ink printed on paper for the truest representation of the intended colour. Solid colour printing, also known as spot or offset, is the process by which a single colour is formulated and then applied through the printing process.
The Pantone Formula Guide is the only guide that includes the ink formulations, the Color Bridge Guides instead provide RGB and HTML values for the Spot colours and CMYK values for the 4-colour process equivalents. Both are important tools for printers, graphic designers and web designers. The extensive range of tools brings your creative ideas to life in print and in other formats. The range includes both solid (spot) and process (CMYK) colours as well as speciality Metallic, Pastel and Neon colours achievable with inks. Choose portable fan guides or Solid chip binders with tear out chips which can be attached to your proofs. Pantone PMS Coated colours are also available in a Plastic Chip format.

The Portable Guide Studio is the ultimate tool for Graphic designers and printers, containing all eight guides in the Pantone PMS system – you will always be able to find the colour your client requests. Don’t need the two speciality (Metallic and Pastel & Neons) colour guides? The Essentials set has the other six guides also in a portable case. Both of these sets are the most economical way to purchase multiple books than buying several individual items.
Pantone spot colours in the Formula Guides, Metallics, Pastels & Neons are also available in binders with tear out chips if you need to send colour chips to a client for approval or want to attach to your specification or artwork to ensure accurate matching.
Just starting out or not sure you need the full set? You first need to decide if you will be working with Spot colours or in CMYK 4-colour process or even a combination of them both! If it is Spot (or solid colour) offset print method only, then the Formula Guide set is your essential tool. Whereas if you are converting Spot colours to CMYK or need to specify colours online the Color Bridge Set or one of the individual Color Bridges will show the two print systems side by side so you can judge how close the CMYK match is and also reference the RGB and hex codes for the Spot colour.
