Pantone Formula Guide Set, GP1601A, now features 2,161 spot colours arranged chromatically on both Coated (C) and Uncoated (U) paper.

The new PMS colours now include more basics and nuance colours such as black, khaki, tan, navy, olive and grey to provide more acceptable matches with the popular colours in the FHI system allowing for packaging and brand colours to be aligned with the product.

Spot ink recipes are shown for every colour.

The Formula Guides contain colour reference numbers 100 to 877, 2001 to 2336, 1205 to 5875, 7401 to 7771 and the 294 extra market-trend colours, added in September 2019, are also included with numbers between 4001 and 4294. Pages of new colours are marked at the top with a square symbol for ease of finding.

The page numbers relate to the corresponding Solid Chips books GP1606A, these have tear out chips  which may be attached to artwork and sent to your clients and suppliers.

If you need CMYK references for digital (4-colour process) printing or HTML codes then the Color Bridge Set is the product for you.
