Pantone Introduces New PANTONE PLUS Revision
Making a color-critical decision under the wrong lighting conditions can greatly compromise the final product. All guides in the PLUS series include a ColorChecker Lighting Indicator to instantly show whether current lighting conditions are suitable for color evaluation.
All books in the PLUS series are printed on text-weight paper to more closely reflect the majority of printed work today and meet certification standards set forth by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an independent organization that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. Products carrying the FSC label assure consumers they are choosing products from forests managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations (Certificate Code SW-COC-003183).

PANTONE PLUS SERIES FORMULA GUIDE and SOLID CHIPS
The FORMULA GUIDE and SOLID CHIPS introduce 224 new solid colors for a total of 1,341 colors, offering designers more options and flexibility in the creative process. The new colors are formulated with the same 14 ink bases that were the foundation of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM, ensuring that printers worldwide can reproduce the new colors when specified. Consistent ink film thicknesses make the new colors easier for printers to match on press.
PANTONE PLUS SERIES COLOR BRIDGE
After extensive technical research, development and testing, a single version suitable for worldwide use is now available. The new COLOR BRIDGE guide has been printed within today’s ISO specifications and G7® processes, with the exception of a more desirable, optically brightened paper.
