Wellcome to the wonderfull world of pantone (and color management) One could think that pantone is sinonimus of a clear guide of color. In my opinion is not. The numbers has no sense.

match specific colors across different media (print and digital) There is no digital 'match'. Pantone is a company that sets color standards for custom printing inks (and some other things, but mainly printing inks). As Scott states, this is usually spot colors (the custom colors) but they also offer CMYK. Regardless, this all takes place in a ...

Bridge guides provide "process color simulations of all solid PANTONE Color". In other words, the bridge guides are all printed in CMYK to match Pantone spot colors as close as possible. You see the CMYK color on the guide along side the actual Pantone spot color. This lets you compare how close the CMYK color is to the spot ink. Formula Guides are printed ...
