Colour Accuracy with Pantone – Explaining Spot & Process Colors in Detail

Colour plays an important role in the design. It gives it a character, assists the viewers to associate with the design, represents relevant themes and gives a basic identity to objects. The colours have a variety of shades based on saturation and light and are effectively incorporated to help customers relate to the object. Since colours have been formulated for different platforms it is imperative that the colour the designer has in mind is what is printed on the surface. Pantone has been the effective medium of communication allowing the designers to access a plethora of colours that can be incorporated in the specific industry. The Pantone shade cards have been utilised as a global language that can help consumers from all over the world use the same terms for a specific colour.

Different Colour Formulating System – PMS vs RGB vs CMYK Colors

Pantone has assisted in bringing the conceptual idea of the colour to life by giving an accurate identity to each shade. The output and the final colour must match what the design states. Each medium uses a different colour system formulated in a different manner. Following mentions the 3 colour modules that are utilised to create a design, from the initial selection of colours to designing to the final printing process.

  • PMS – the Pantone Matching System is an internationally accepted language helping the designers communicate with the manufacturers about the precise shade they need. With a variety of industry-specific shade cards made available by Pantone, the colours found to enhance the aesthetics of the particular products. With a cascade of shades, the designers can incorporate them with their innovations.
  • RGB – The RGB colour module is used on digital electronic screens. The primary colours – red, green and blue are used to create a variety of shades that can be incorporated in creating digital designs. The combination of these three colours are used to create a broad spectrum of colours and its various shades. From creating black with zero intensity to white with the addition of extreme or full intensity, the RBG system can create a mammoth spectrum of colours. In terms of web-designs, RBG has over 16 million colours available through the TML codes and 216 webspace colours.
  • CMYK –  This colour module is universally accepted and used primary colours used for printing. CMYK is the suffix for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. This method formulates colours by combining these shades to create an endless option of colours that are used for printing. 
The Pantone Color Bridge Uncoated & Coated Guide have PMS, RGB and CMYK colors comobinations with formulations present. This is the main advantage over the regular Pantone Formula Guide.

Difference between Pantone Spot, Process & RGB

What exactly are Spot Colours?

There are about 18 base colours the spot colours are created by the Pantone Matching System (PMS) with a unique ink mix that is formulated to create a vast variety of colours. The spot colours or solid colours are created to assure that the mixing of colours gives precision and accuracy in shades. Compared to the CMYK or RGB, the PMS formulates colours with the help of 18 colours that give a brighter and cleaner look to the outcome. Along with its vibrancy, spot colours are used to provide consistency with each production of the same shade.

What are Process Colours?

The process colours are created by CMYK colours and are predominantly used in printing. With these four base colours, the printing technology combines these shades to create the colours that are seen on the screen. The process colours are developed as percentages of the four base colours and the variations of colour percentage formulated and create new shades. The CMYK colours are the basic foundation of process colours that allow printing of the designs on a wide colour spectrum to take place.

Difference between Pantone Spot and Process colours

Pantone Bridge CMYK Guide

The creation of colours and its various shades are done by different methods making spot and process colours differently. The spot colours utilise 18 base colours whereas process colours only 4. This makes the most difference in the final product and makes Spot colours more vibrant and bright. To avoid disappointment with the outcome of the printed colour, there is a gap which needs to be bridged between these two processes. Spot colour is utilised by PMS and process colours are created with CMYK in printing, thus there is an impending need to bring symbiosis between PMS and CMYK. Pantone Color Bridge Coated Guide has side by side display of colors to give an actual feel after printing, therefore saving several hours of printing and testing.

Bridging the Colours between PMS and Pantone CMYK Printing

Since there are three colour systems involved, that are formulated with different processes, a change in colour and shade is bound to happen. The colour change from start to finish has become apparent within the industries and there is an impending need to bridge the gap between the systems.
