Hi there!

 

I am new to Pantone Connect.  I am currently working on a logo design project on Adobe illustrator and I used the Pantone app to convert a CMYK color to Pantone.  I got 19-3953 TCX Sodalite Blue.  Is it possible to convert this color to PMS Uncoated or is this universal color?

What I would do:

Get a printed sample of that CMYK color.

Get a printed Pantone swatches book.

Select the color.

 

Second best: install the previous Illustrator version (26)

Grab the Pantone color books from it and install them in your current version.

Set up color management correctly.

Convert the CMYK color to the Uncoated Pantone Solid.

Those are textile inks. Are you printing fabric?

No, it won't be textile.

I converted the colors using the plugin on Adobe  and that was the only option it gave me. I need PMs uncoated.

 

Since I am new to this, is there any tutorial you may suggest me to learn about color conversion from CMYK to PMS uncoated?
