What do the suffixes TPG, TPX, TCX in the Pantone Fashion Home + Interiors -color system mean?
TPG/TPX and TCX - suffix simply tells you whether it is a color produced on paper or cotton.
- TPG = TEXTILE PAPER GREEN (launched in 2015 with environmentally friendlier pigments)
- TPX = TEXTILE PAPER, EXTENDED RANGE (launched in 2003, no longer in production and outdated)
- TCX = TEXTILE COTTON
Is there a difference in the Pantone textile system colors between the codes TP and TPG/TPX?
Yes, there are differences between the colour systems. The letter G (=GREEN) at the end tells it is a colour from the latest system, updated in 2015 with new colors added in 2020. The TPG suffix indicates more eco-friendly formulations.
The letter X at the end tells it is a colour from the EXTENDED RANGE system, updated in 2003 and no longer valid or in production.
If you are still using the TP or TPX system, you should update to TPG as quickly as possible.
