New Pantone Plus Series Formula Guides - two guide set
The PANTONE formula guide has been an essential tool for graphic designers, pre-press professionals and printers for four decades. As today's converging workflows are making colour management more challenging than ever, we have responded by replacing the Pantone Matching System® with the new PLUS SERIES which enhances the tools available. The new PLUS SERIES retains all the classic colours of the Pantone Matching System® while building on its success with exciting new colours and features.
The Pantone PLUS Formula Guide provides a consistent method for selecting and matching solid PANTONE Colours. Its simple design provides a convenient and portable colour reference library that can accompany you at client presentations or on press runs. The guide contains a full range of 1,341 colours including 224 new solid colours, with corresponding ink mixing formulas in parts and percentages.

Colours that bear both the RGB and CMYK icons are ideal choices for designs that will span cross-media.
