What is Pantone?

Pantone is a standardized colour matching system, utilizing the Pantone numbering system for identifying colors. By standardizing the colours, different manufacturers in different locations can all reference a Pantone numbered color, making sure colors match without direct contact with one another. The Pantone palette consists of 1,114 colors, identified by three or four digit numbers, followed by a C, U, Or M suffix. Originally designed for the graphics industry, the pantone solids palette is now used by a wide range of business. It is the most commonly used palette in promotional products industry.
