2015 Pantone« Plus Series Edition
The latest products are based on the Pantone Matching System (PMS) introduced in 1963 with the classic Pantone printing inks. This color palette has since been continuously extended and supplemented with modern trend colors. All the reference colors in the Pantone Plus Series are printed color samples, and the color impression is always dependent on the substrate.
The color samples are therefore supplied on two qualities of paper:
c = coated printing paper - application: color leaflets, catalogs, etc.
u = uncoated paper - application: headed notepaper, manuals, printing on copier paper.
The Pantone Plus Series color palettes are now used worldwide in the graphic design industry, printing industry and to some extent also in architecture and other industrial sectors. PANTONE has been a market leader in the color referencing business for over 50 years.
The 2015 edition remains unchanged in terms of content, although the covers of the products have been redesigned in some cases.
