Use only official Pantone colour product for most accurate colour.Pantone colors are color codes that stand for a specific shade. You can communicate about colors by defining the pantone code. Basically, pantone is the standard language for colors. The formula developed by pantone is a spot color. This means that the color is created from a palette of 18 basic colors, not with screens or dots. Process colors are CMYK colors, the color is determined by cyan, magenta, yellow and black. There are more pantone colors because not all colors can be mixed in CMYK.
