PANTONE PLUS SERIES Extended Gamut Coated Guide


The new PANTONE PLUS SERIES Extended Gamut Coated Guide has been developed to help designers and printers determine how closely seven-colour printing (CMYK+OGV) can achieve PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM® spot colours.

Thanks to the advancements in process printing technology, the PANTONE Extended Gamut Coated Guide bridges the gap between spot and process colour printing, and provides greater colour matching abilities.  

The PANTONE Extended Gamut Coated Guide is printed with an extremely high quality, seven-colour printing process using existing Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) inks plus commonly used Orange, Green and Violet (OGV) inks that ‘extend’ the colour gamut significantly.

The PANTONE Extended Gamut Guide will allow designers and printers to achieve approximately 90% of all PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM spot colours through the seven-colour process system.
