I think you kind of answered your own question.... " . . . guide for matte coated paper . . ." Some print providers (and paper vendors) refer to uncoated stock as "matte". Other providers/vendors refer to dull coat stock as "matte". For dull coat, it's still a coat, so coated. For uncoated, ermm, yeah uncoated :) The coated/uncoated has more to do ...

The costs. Scott mentioned. 1 pass of 1 spot color is cheaper than 4 passes crom a cmyk print. 1) If the main subject is to use the logo on a letterhead, some business cards, yeap, you print it using 1 ink, 1 spot color. 2) But if your logo is normally used in a full color photographic catalog, a spot color means an aditional spot color, than mean 1 extra ...

A Pantone color Logo is 1 ink. 1 pass on the press. 1 plate. A CMYK logo is 4 inks, 4 passes on the press, 4 plates. Then additional effort to ensure registration is correct. With this in mind a single Pantone color will almost always be less expensive than 4 color process. However... if you are printing a 4C piece and you have a spot color logo, adding a ...

See if the coated version of 534 is closer to what you want. Context: Pantone colours are for printing inks or fabric colours. On screen colours are made by light, not ink, so they always vary a bit. There's more variation with 534u because the 'U' stands for uncoated, as in uncoated paper (for example, in a newspaper). They absorb more ink than coated ...

In agreement with DA01, it is best to use the Pantone Bridge to connect the dots, but what you are experiencing is that your "Edit/Color Settings" are probably different from Illustrator and Photoshop. It is best to set your master color settings in Adobe Bridge and save them as a preset, which then makes all Adobe programs use the same Color Settings. If ...

I was having the same issue, copying an illustrator logo from another designer into a print piece in cs6. I noticed that the 100y yellow changed to 100Y 49M orange. I am copying from cmyk to cmyk and my color setting for cmyk is set to ignore profiles and preserve numbers so this shouldn't be happening. Then I noticed that the donor file color swatches are ...

The color All offset printer can use chocolate mousse to pint if you feed it with that... well probably no, but it does not matter what is the color of the ink you feed. Some Machines can print just one color at the time. That is one head printer. For aditional colors you need to clean the machine and feed the paper again. Some machines can print 2 colors ...

Pantone matching books are only supposed to last a year, due to natural fading of inks, sun damage and slow degeneration of paper. You say you had the formula guide for some time, so that may just account for the difference right there. I've dealt with a wide array of inks and papers over 15 years, and I can tell you, it is very hard for Pantone to do a ...

One approach is to print a grid of sample colors varying around that target spot color, find the closest match, then generate another grid around that match with a smaller range of variation, and repeat this process to narrow down to a RGB value that's as close as desired ( or possible ) to the desired spot color value. You just need to know the ...

Yes it would be redundant. The Color Bridge Guide has 2 swatches for every color - the Pantone color, then next to it the CMYK equivalent. There would be little point in also having the solid formula guide. Okay, not totally redundant. Sometimes having the full swatch of the Pantone color can be handy, but it won't be any different than the color in the ...
