Published: Thursday 15th October 2015

Categories: Color Confidence Range, Colour Reference, General News, Pantone, Printing

EGGPANTONE has launched a new colour communication guide that bridges the gap between CMYK and spot colour printing.

The new PANTONE PLUS SERIES Extended Gamut Coated Guide has been created to help brand owners; designers, prepress professionals and printers to determine when it may be possible to more accurately reproduce a solid PANTONE colour using CMYK + PANTONE XG Orange, Green and Violet (OGV) Inks.

The PANTONE Extended Gamut Guide is a visual, seven-colour printing simulation of the 1,729 existing PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM® colours.
