About PMS colors
The Pantone Matching System, or 'PMS' for short, originated in New Jersey, USA, in the 1950s. The idea behind PMS is to allow designers to match specific colors once a design enters the production phase, regardless of the equipment used to produce the colors. This system has been widely adopted by graphic designers and printing companies. Colors can appear differently per surface, which is why there are Pantone color collections for coated, uncoated and matte paper.
PMS is a standardized color reproduction system and contains 2,161 colors as of 2019. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can refer to the Pantone system to ensure that colors match without having direct contact with each other.
By using PMS colors, printing companies can ensure that the prints match the demands of the client. By using PMS colors, you can be sure that your printeds will always be delivered in the right colors. PMS colors are indicated by a unique number followed by a letter. The letter indicates the type of paper. For example, 'C' stands for coated, 'U' for uncoated and 'M' for matte.all Coated colors
