    Hi PD,
    Thank you. No problem. :-)

    I apologize...

  • PMS colors?

    I just started at a new job and I need to figure out what the PMS colors for our business cards; unfortunately the original designer is dead. Go figure, nothing is easy.

    Welcome Katouche! We ask all new members to have a read through these important threads with our rules and FAQs.

    Do you at least have access to the designer's files and the programs used to create them? Do you know who printed the cards (though they likely don't have your files or details if it's been a while)?

    Sorry to hear about the designer. You're right, death can sure make things difficult.

      Holding a seance is a good way to get that information. If a psychic is unavailable, a Pantone swatch book may also prove useful.
