Pantone Matching System
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is an internationally accepted colour matching system. The system contains 1755 special colours that cannot be realised with four-colour-printing. Moreover, it is composed of 14 basic colours. They result in all other colours when being blended in different portions. On one side, it is used to guarantee that the colour turns out as desired on different printing stocks. On the other side, it facilitates communication between everyone involved, as Pantone colour codes be objectively and easily exchanged globally.
