Pms 3517

Does anyone have the formula to mix PMS 3517…it’s not in our pantone book, and of course we have a rush job to get out before the holidays.

Thanks.

Sorry, I don’t but maybe NeverMan will.
What’s really funny is I just broke down and ordered a new formula deck only yesterday. Won’t have it until next Wednesday.

RGB 186 0 32

Thanks Monkey…but I need the formula to mix the spot color

I just asked at another forum, I think someone may have it over there

Thank you Designia…may I ask what forum is that. I love having multiple resources.

I found this online calculator;

https://www.iccultramix.com/families/7/formulas/23903

Part Number Description % Weight Mixing Grams
7505 Scarlet 68.7% 68.7
7538 Mixing White 18.0% 18.0
7507 Red 12.6% 12.6
7536 Mixing Black 0.7% 0.7
100.0% 100.0

Accuracy will depend on using their inks.

[EDIT] Just noticed they are screen printing inks - maybe there’s a similar calculator on your ink supplier’s website?

easiest is to pick up the phone and call 1-800-Pantone.

I just figured Pantone would only say…well you can order a new ink guide. LOL

C or U?

Uncoated

If you explained the situation maybe they would say “happy holidays, here’s your numbers?”
You lapsed 2 hours of valuable time here.
:wink:

Thank you every one for trying to get this ink mix… I was able to get it from our ink vendor.

The replies are interesting…Guess Spot color on paper is a dying thing.

I feel so old…Just 9 more years til retirement…can’t wait.

Glad you got that sorted.

Spot color on paper isn’t so much a dying thing.
There’s a couple factors at work in this thread, the biggest one being it’s a graphic design forum. Designers don’t [usually] have formula books.

I don’t have one because I do spots differently (ie no Pantone mixing inks involved) and our Nazdar screen inks book is out of date and useless to you. The only reason I ordered the formula guide is because I needed a fan deck and it was on sale. LOL.

Silly observation, but as far as I know, the ink mix doesn’t change coated to uncoated. Just the paper changes.

I thought the ink build was the same for both coated and uncoated also

Thank you everyone! Job is on Press. All 250 envelopes lol.

:rofl:

Curious what the mix was.
And if you are using Pantone’s ink set.
