パントンマッチングシステム PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®
PANTONE®CMYK Guide Coated & Uncoated
The CMYK values changed because the new CMYK Guides use G7-calibrated printing to match the CRPC6 press reference (for Coated Guide) and CRPC3 press reference (for Uncoated Guide). These calibrated press spaces have different CMYK “recipes” for the appearance of the color swatches than have historically been published in the Pantone CMYK Guide.。
The advantage is that the CMYK color tint values in the latest CMYK Guides will work to give a similar color appearance to the Guides when a design is proofed or printed to the G7 / CRPC references.
No, the Pantone CMYK Guides have always had 2,889 colors.
The ‘*’ indicates colors that have a matching color in the PMS system (Pantone Formula Guide). Colors without the ‘*’ have no PMS matching color and are therefore unique. They give choices for colors in between existing Formula Guide Colors.
You can look up the CMYK Guide color by name in Pantone Connect Premium and use the Pantone-to-Pantone function under the Convert Tool.
No. Colors marked with an * are within 2 delta E 2000 (also known as ∆E00) of a Pantone Color. The CMYK tint that corresponds to the exact Pantone Color in the Bridge Guide may be closer. Always choose CMYK values from the Color Bridge Guide when you need to match a PMS color most exactly in CMYK.
The CMYK Guide is intended to give you more choices. It is a completely separate color library, not intended to replace the PMS, but to give more choices in the design process.
There are 703 more color swatches in the CMYK Guide. In the Coated Guide, 979 of the colors have a match to a PMS color and are marked with an *. That means there are 1,889 unique colors in the CMYK Guide Coated, compared to the Formula Guide Coated.
There are 1,653 unique colors.
Because the Uncoated color gamut is smaller. The colors are closer together and therefore more likely to fall within 2 ∆E00 of a color in the Formula Guide Uncoated.
Yes, Pantone Connect will be updated to show the new CMYK Guide tint values in our upgraded monthly subscription service, Pantone Connect Premium.
No, the Formula Guide is always the first tool of choice for finding colors when designing. If you are designing for CMYK print, then the CMYK Guide gives you more color choices to complement the Formula Guide. While there are more colors to choose from, because they are all 100% achievable in the CMYK color space on the appropriate paper stock, the CMYK Guide Colors are not as bright and vibrant as some of those in the Formula Guide.
