The Pantone solid color guidelines are designed for “spot” or “flat tone” printing. The ink will be specifically mixed and matched to a particular color.
The Pantone four-color-process color guidelines are designed for all four-color-process printing (which includes essentially all digital printing as well as screen print four-color-process and litho four-color-process). The four inks (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) are mixed during the printing process to create all the required colors in a design. The 4-color-process permits use of an essentially unlimited range of colors, but is not quite as precise when it comes to matching a particular solid color.
Pantone color standards for four-color-process printing are different (and sometimes very different) than the same Pantone color standard of a spot or solid color. However, given the “universal” nature of Pantone colors, they are, naturally, an excellent reference for specific color requirements. Circle Graphics encourages the use of this standard, and we encourage you to always identify your specific Pantone colors required on any job so we can ensure that we follow this standard.
We would ideally like to get your Pantone reference information on the order form in the “notes” section. We also look for Pantone reference numbers in your digital file (on separate layers outside the live area of your artwork). It is critical, however, that you “call out” or specifically identify the Pantone requirements because we may not always find embedded Pantone-builds that are not identified.
We strongly recommend that our customers have a Pantone Solid-to-Process Guide or the newer Pantone Colorbridge available to assist with color selection for digital printing. The guide book is available in a “flip size” and a larger “swatch book” that enables you to remove swatches for your customers. The link below will bring you to the website of a competitively priced authorized dealer of the Pantone books (note: we do not have a relationship with this company and there may be other sources for this guide).
Look for the product that we have mentioned at the bottom of the linked page (PANTONE color bridge coated #GGS201).
