What is the difference PANTONE 340 U and PANTONE 340 UP? Is the UP color CMYK process printed color or not? Because they are really different. I want to buy pantone catalog today and I don't know Color Bridge is enough for me? For example I am generally using Pantone 320 C and this color is our company branding color. If I send something to print I am using Pantone 320C, If I sent something to print as CMYK, I am using 100,0,31,5 CMYK. So Color Bridge is enough for me? What is including this cartela?
Here are the most recent Pantone Colour Suffix Differences from the PANTONE Help Center:
CV = computer video. This designation is used to denote that a color is an electronic simulation of a PANTONE Color. It is used in older versions of software applications that license PANTONE Colors, e.g., Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia FreeHand, QuarkXPress, Adobe Photoshop, etc.
CVC = computer video, coated paper. This denotes electronic simulation of the color specifically as it appears on coated paper; "CVU" does the same on uncoated paper.
C = coated paper, i.e., PANTONE 185 C
U = uncoated paper, i.e., PANTONE 185 U
CP = coated paper, process simulation, i.e., PANTONE 185 CP (used in PANTONE+ COLOR BRIDGE COATED).
UP = uncoated paper, process simulation, i.e., PANTONE 185 UP (used in PANTONE+ COLOR BRIDGE UNCOATED).
The following designations for PANTONE Colors used in earlier versions of PANTONE COLOR BRIDGE are now obsolete:
PC = process simulation, coated paper, i.e., PANTONE 185 PC.
UP= uncoated paper, process simulation, i.e., PANTONE 185 UP.
EC - Euro process simulation, coated paper, i.e., PANTONE 185 EC. This was used in the European version which is now obsolete.
