I'm creating some packaging for a drinks company, I'm trying to match the flavour colour used on the bottle with the bottle cap which is metallic. The problem is i'm not getting a good match using pantone premium metallics. Just wondering if its possible to mix the flavour colour (Pantone 2995 C) with a Pantone Silver to get a perfect match? Any advice welcome...Thanks
I don't think it will work very well. You will probably be disappointed with the result.
Metallic litho inks aren't very shiny/lustrous to begin with. If you mix it with regular ink, you will reduce the lustrous effect even more. Basically you'll dilute the metallic particles in the ink.
Perhaps look into another printing technology - such as hot foil printing.
