    F*ing Pantone...
    That book is great for designers. Sucks for printers to have to look up colors in an index to find the friggin chip.
    <for those of you who haven't seen one, the colors are now arranged chromatically, NOT numerically. PITA>

    They just want to piss off enough people so they'll switch to the chromatic GOE system.
    Not gonna happen...

        I don't have the formula book. Doing a spot check of the colors that always cause us problems, most appear to be the same. We are seeing some variance in some of the blues but probably no more shift than we see generally from book to book. If a designer doesn't send us chips, we might ask what the date is on their book and if it's all that critical, talk them into a proof.
        I love shifting standards.
        They've also added additional colors and a whole new set of metallic numbers starting with PMS 10101 through 10399.
        I hate Pantone.

          the worst part about pantones is that almost no one actually prints to pantones (and for magazines that is really true).
          So clients send me their colours in pantone, which is fine, I convert to CMYK and then they get all huffy when they get the magazine in that their colour is slightly off... well then get your GD who did your logo to send me the CMYK!

            I have just the opposite problem. People send me CMYK and expect me to hit their pantone. It doesn't work that way either.

                  That's part of the problem...they often don't make one. When we make a logo internally we match Pantone coated, uncoated, CMYK and RGB.

                  When expensive agencies are hired to create an identity, more often than not they dump Pantone logos on us to figure out the rest. Most of the time they don't even take coated & uncoated into account.

                    ^^ I know. it's really pathetic that they don't make a CMYK and RGB version.
                    What's sadder is that I know I'm chasing down other GD's who make like three times my wage to be useless.
                    *sigh*

                      If your lucky.
                      Sometimes you get a 'glassy button' RGB raster file.

                        Yeah, that was sort of my point.

                        I encountered a woman last week who was praising Vlad Putin--and how &quot;strong&quot; he is, and how &quot;popular&quot; he is.

                        At large size, I would agree, however, at just under 2'' square, I disagree.
