Pantone has rapidly become the industry standard in color selection and reproduction for book publishing industries around the globe, popular among graphic designers, printers, and other professionals involved with color work. Pantone Inc. established this system as an indispensable resource in their respective professions.
Pantone offers an expansive palette with individual codes for each shade – providing uniform communication across platforms, materials, and devices. Their Pantone Matching System (PMS) has proven especially helpful to book publishers in achieving color accuracy and consistency across printed materials such as book covers, illustrations, and other visual elements.
Pantone provides book publishers with an effective tool for ensuring that the colors intended by designers translate accurately, no matter which printing process or location. Pantone codes serve as a helpful reference point, helping designers and printers match colors using specific inks or pigments – resulting in consistent results while decreasing color variation.
Pantone offers more than color accuracy; their Pantone Color Books and Guides make color selection and visualization simple for designers. Each book contains hundreds of thousands of swatches with Pantone numbers attached, so it is simple for designers to identify, communicate, and reproduce certain hues quickly.
Pantone Colors can assist companies in developing brand guidelines and maintaining consistency across marketing materials, such as ads, brochures, and promotional items associated with their books. Many publishing houses create Pantone palettes to ensure brand colors remain constant across marketing material related to them.
Pantone has expanded their offering to include industry-specific color systems, such as Fashion Home + Interiors (FHI) for textiles and Plastics for plastic materials.
Pantone has long been recognized in the book and publishing industries as an accurate means for accurately selecting, communicating, and reproducing colors. Designers and publishers rely on Pantone to produce visually appealing printed materials that enhance the quality and impact of books and publications.
