I'm not a graphic designer and I need some help regarding Pantone colors. Although I work in the design field my main job over the years is 3d modeling for architecture and industrial design, so printing and GD isn't my thing. I just wanted to make a cool b-card for me and my services.
I picked two colors from the Pantone C range that I wanted to use. I read about color modes and although I already have the basics I need some help. When I decided to print what I got I took my file which was made in Inkscape (Idon't want to buy Ai just for 1 b-card) to the print shop for a test print on coated paper. The guy there uses Ai and just dropped the SVG file in Illustrator. His workflow was in CMYK and of course the colors changed.
When I made the vector file I used the HEX color values since it's that's what Inkscape works in.
My question is since this little project uses just two colors is it appropriate to open the SVG in the Ai with CMYK workflow and just edit the values as shown in the official page.
