Pantone has announced PANTONE PLUS, the next generation of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM. Enhancements include the chromatic arrangement of colors for more intuitive selection, an expanded palette of spot colors, the addition of new premium metallics, and a broader range of neons.
PANTONE COLOR MANAGER Software, available free-of-charge with every PLUS SERIES purchase, lets designers update design applications with the new PLUS SERIES Color Libraries. An added feature allows users to convert spot colors to CMYK simulations based on loaded ICC profiles. Creatives can also access the entire PANTONE PLUS SERIES from their iPhones with the myPANTONE iPhone application. Additionally, with the myPANTONE X-Ref iPhone application, designers can cross-reference all PANTONE Color Libraries. 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).
