    Yeah, it's too bad new designers don't know them.

    You shouldn't be looking on google images... at least not without expecting to pursue permission to use the images. Google images is NOT a stock site, though some stock shows up in it.

    Very strange. You want someone to tell you how to set up a site so YOU will benefit?
    The Graphic Design part sounds like it will be very important to the success of your site.
    How much money...

        The pantone formula guide that I have says:
        6 pts PANTONE Ref. Blue
        2 pts PANTONE VIOLET
        8 pts PANTONE Trans. Wt.
        Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

          no, i've got the CMYK levels already... MD had what i was looking for i think.

          Here is the situation;
          I'm trying to match the color of a CMYK background on a label to the color of the Bottle it is going. Problem is the Bottle color was made to match PMS 2728, and CMYK can't reproduce/replicate that vibrant of blue...
          so i am having the printer swap out the Magenta Ink Plate for another PMS ink, netting out a color that is closer to PMS 2728.

          anybody have any experience doing this? if so, how did you go about picking the correct color?

                "Can't they print it CMYK + spot color?"
                The CMYK background is already making the "Blue Hue" i am shooting for. If i could show it to you guys this CMYK Background, you whould think that it is Duotone cause it just looks Black and Blue. (i'm not doing duotone because of the Loss of Depth)
                adding a spot to all the CMYK artwork would make it way too dark/muddy


                "thats gonna be alot of work on their end"
                it shouldn't be too hard, just swap out the ink used on the Magenta Plate.

                  I'll be curious how it turns out and the solution when it gets figured out. Keep us posted.
