Screen Printing Ink Colors

For spot-color, screen-printed plates, unless you request otherwise, we'll automatically create and print your plates using one or more of the standard colors in the chart below.
The swatches below are labeled with both the common color name (above the swatch) we've assigned, as well as the equivalent Pantone/ PMS swatch name or number (below the swatch). Also note that the Pantone names/ numbers here correspond to the "coated"/ glossy-finish version of the Pantone swatches, as opposed to the "uncoated"/ matte-finish version.

Color swatches shown are approximate only, due to differences between computer monitors, which can and do vary significantly.

Pantone/PMS color matches:

The Pantone (R) Matching System is the industry standard color matching system. The color formula guide provides an accurate method for selecting, specifying, broadcasting, and matching colors through any medium around the world. It is the ideal way to ensure true colors when you select your imprint. This color chart below may vary slightly depending on monitors, but offers a rough way to narrow colors.

If you request, we can also match any Pantone Matching System (PMS) color. There is a charge of $ 25.00 per color match.
