PANTONE Extended Gamut Guide
It's Time That Process-Printed PANTONE Colors Got a Little More Spot On.
The EXTENDED GAMUT Coated guide features simulations of 1,729 PLUS SERIES FORMULA GUIDE Colors. Coated colors printed using a seven-color printing process. By adding Orange, Green and Violet (OGV) to the traditional Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) inks, you can achieve an acceptable visual match for approximately 90% of the solid colors in the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®. Adding these commonly used inks "extends" the attainable color gamut
Please note: This guide does not include the latest additions to the PMS Color Range.
- 1,729 PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM Colors simulated in seven-color process
- Colors are printed using CMYK plus Orange, Green and Violet
- Perfect for packaging, labels, tags and anywhere a wider gamut of color is required in process printing
Brand logos and standards that often include multiple spot colors can present printing challenges, and in order to save time and money, a CMYK process could be one option. Designers and printers have used the PANTONE COLOR BRIDGE® Guide for many years as an excellent resource to help determine how closely a CMYK process color could match to a specific PANTONE® Spot Color.
Now, thanks to the advancements in process printing technology, the PANTONE PLUS SERIES EXTENDED GAMUT Coated Guide provides more color matching assistance and choices for everyone like never before.
Pantone’s PLUS SERIES EXTENDED GAMUT Coated 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 color gamut significantly. Compare these new seven-color simulations to PANTONE Spot Colors and see how much closer you can get!
