  • 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.
    Anyway, I'm not a graphic designer, but thought that this would be the best place to get some help on this matter. Anything helps! Thanks!

    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.

            You have a solid point. My husband has been offered nice jobs, but we'd have to move. Since I'm 17 years in my job (and primary earner) and his job history is sketchy (not *always* his fault, lol), we...

            Hello together,
            I've thought and read about the advantages of getting a degree in graphic design and have come to the conclusion that this is indeed something that I both want and need. Now I've...

            That's more about what 18-year olds ''think'' is cool. Funnily enough, that tradesman will likely earn more in the long run than the pixel pusher, depending on location, skill, market, expertise....

            I'm going to have to disagree here. In my line of work, paper and printing are very decidedly not on their way out. That being said, I do not deal with small businesses or start-up entrepreneurs with...
