At kingteeshops we work with many clients who have no prior experience in printing custom merch, and we can help at every step of the waySkull My Happy Place shirt . However, we have also put together this post going through the basics on pantones and what you need to know when planning to print your design. The Pantone Matching System (PMS) was created as a way for designers to consistently be able match specific colours. This means that when a designer chooses a specific “green” for a design, the manufacturer, client, partner, printer, etc. are all able to refer to the Pantone system and create a perfectly matched “green.” We use pantones to match colours for screen printing jobs. This can work two ways: either we match clients’ designs with the pantone we think is closest, or the client will match it themselves, sending over a pantone code along with their design. We add these pantone codes to our visual proof that goes to production, ensuring that our print team will produce the exact colour match of original artwork.Also known as the “spot colour” method, the pantone colour chart can show you what solid colours are supposed to look like in real life. The number coded and catalogued way they are collated is the global standard by which printers work to. A Pantone book costs around £150 and they can be purchased from a multitude of graphics related retailers online.
