      Yes, but it shows either Dark Ivory or a not so true colour oof ivoy

      I really need to know what the "official" pms code is.

      For example google says that ivory is pms-608 yet look at the difference between:

      Googles ivory code: http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone...spx?c_id=34086

      and true ivory: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...iw=967&bih=807

      Its much darker, i need a the latter

        PMS colors are not named. I could give you any number of pms numbers for what I think Ivory is. You need to get a sample of what you think is ivory and match it physically to a chip in the Pantone book. Or something that can be cross referenced, like a Benjamin Moore (or other paint company) color number.

          There is no such thing.

          As PrintDriver said, Pantone colors don't match up to anything except Pantone's own matching system. There are several named PMS base colors, but all the rest are simply numbered.

          Colors like ivory, cinnamon, teal, beige, fuschia or even orange, grey or pink aren't precise colors. They're just imprecise names that people seem to apply to general ranges of colors. You might go to a paint store and find a color called "ocean delight," but it's a made-up name that only applies to their particular color system. Or you might be doing web design and specify ivory as a color, but that ivory is also just a made-up name that corresponds to a specific hexadecimal and RGB value.

          Pantone doesn't match their numbering system to these general names or any other color naming systems. If you want a PMS color to match your sample of ivory, you'll need to pick whatever numbered PMS color from a Pantone swatch book that you think is closest, and the likelihood of it being an exact match is slim.

            You will need a Pantone book.

            Colours vary from eye to eye and gender to gender - here's a whimiscal yet perculiarly accurate infographic on how girls and boys see colours

              That's an incredibly accurate chart there Eug.
              The thing it doesn't tell you is that to a guy, all 6 colors of pink look like one color. Same for the green, although you might get a Light green and a Dark green if pressed...
              LOL.

                I love that chart!
                It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

                  Ha - yeh I can see where you'd be pressed for dark or light green.

                    The rips today are very robust. It isn't often we get a crash. It's more like, you know, standing there, tapping your foot and looking at your watch thinking how many other projects you could be doing...

                    Do you understand the difference between raster and vector? Resolution in vector images is a non-issue since they're scalable. Vector images aren't made of pixels like raster images, so there's really...

                    Just my opinion, but I think one of the most valuable parts of any design schooling is the interaction and feedback one gets from fellow students and instructors. For that matter, I'll go so far as to...

                    So, I've read quite a few posts detailing the pros/cons of online vs. brick and mortar design schools, but my current situation a little different than most. I enrolled at a liberal arts school a couple...

                    Yeah, it's a common question that's asked here. In the forum search feature, try searching for "What computer do I need". You'll find lots of replies.
