PANTONE PLUS EXTENDED GAMUT Coated
Extend Your Color Expectations!
We know branding can often include multiple spot colors and for production, a CMYK printing process may be suggested in order to save time and money. For years, the PANTONE COLOR BRIDGE® Guide has helped designers and printers determine how closely a CMYK color may match a specific PANTONE Spot Color. Now, given the advancements in color print technology, we are pleased to introduce the new EXTENDED GAMUT Guide to assist you in making color choices like never before. Pantone’s PLUS SERIES EXTENDED GAMUT Guide is printed with an extremely high quality, seven-color printing process using existing Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) inks, plus commonly used Orange, Green and Violet (OGV) inks that “extend” the achievable color gamut significantly.
