Hi!

I'm figuring out wich 'Pantone' Color book a graphic designer should get.
I've watched and read a lot of articles and youtube. What about the Pantone Coated and Uncoated Color Bridge guides?

Any experiences wich color book I should get, cuz I'm overwhelmed with the offer.

 

Thank you very much!

Rachel

Are you planning to print using spot inks? Do your clients typically ask for that? Do you offer logo design (which would be a typical example where you need spot colors)?

Or do you offer web design and your clients use spot inks in their logos and you need to know how they look?

The colour bridge sets are CMYK equivalents of Pantone colours.

They are presumably useful for that purpose, but not if you're looking for the actual spot inks.

I don't know what the CMYK break down should be good for, because Pantone did it based on whatever color management they use.

 

You can probably get a more exact conversion with suitable color management settings.
