What is a Pantone?

Posted on: April 25, 2018 in by Debbie Paterson

You’ve sent us your design or our artwork gurus have created a masterpiece for you – but you’ve been asked for a Pantone reference. What’s a Pantone? Why have we asked for that?

1. a system for matching colours, used in specifying printing inks.

We know this might sound daft, but sometimes the colours print differently to what they appear on your screen. The screen settings (brightness / contrast) etc all affect the way the colours are displayed on your screen, and they might look quite different on ours too!

We would hate you to be disappointed with the final product so we use pantone colours to check the final printed colour. If you know, or can find out, what pantone colours are used in your logo please email the colour references to us at artwork@imagin-badges.co.uk.

I want to say thank you very much to your team for the ID badges, the whole process was quite painless (other than me collecting photos from our engineers), the quality and speed of delivery are excellent. Thanks…

Just wanted to say thank you for the badges. Your service is amazing and the badges attracted a lot of compliments. They certainly beat the standard ‘boring’ looking badges. People also couldn’t believe how reasonably priced they were too.…
