Pantone Color Info
« on: January 13, 2022, 01:03:56 PM »
Hi Guyz,

Need very basic help, I created a logo and stationery which have 100%black and 100%cyan overall.
Now the print company asking for blue Pantone color which I created using illustrator which is " Pantone P Process Cyan C".

Can someone here confirm if its the correct color? Because they are asking for some number color code.

Thanks

there is no Pantone Process Cyan, there is a Pantone Process Blue.
It doesn't really have a number, it's between PMS 306 and PMS 307 in the book.

It's just called Pantone Process Blue C

Did you make a spot color yourself or did you load the one from the Color Book?

I don't have the book, I created it from Adobe Illustrator Pantone color book.

Can you confirm the same match in Pantone for Cyan100%?

Could you confirm which Pantone should I mention to printer? It should be the exact or near match of 100%Blue(C)

Pantone Process Blue is the actual name of that color.

So what number are they asking for?

I mentioned them already "Pantone Process Blue", But I got a reply "Its not a correct color, It should be something with the numbers like 30U". Btw Pantone is required for the textile/apparel print to match the logo color.

I asked because "Pantone Process Blue" is not a number. The closest you are going to get to Cyan 100% is with Pantone 312 C which translates to CMYK as C=96% M=5% Y=15% K=0% which is pretty darn close.

There is no match in the Pantone library for something like Process Cyan because if someone wants something to look like Cyan 100% they should just use Cyan 100%.

There's also a separate library for textiles. They call it fashion and home now I think.
