What is the difference between CMYK and PMS colors?

If you are working with a graphic design on the computer, its appearance will always be different than when printed. The advantage of pantone colors is that they show the result of the real colors that the printer uses. Pantone swatches are available. Pantone color versus CMYK color uses inks that are premixed which makes printing easier but more expensive.

What is CMYK?

CMYK or „Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, BlacK“ is a color model that, unlike RGB, works with what is called subtractive color mixing. This means that the blending limits the color spectrum reflected from the surface. The use of this model is mainly in printing, where colors are created by mixing pigments.

What is PANTONE?

Pantone or PMS ( Pantone Color Matching System) is a standardised system for color reproduction patented by Pantone. The ambition of this color system is to prevent misunderstandings and mistakes about the exact shade of colors. The designer, the printer and the client can thus clearly and confidently agree on the color rendering of the design. The PMS consists of a sample of 1867 spot colors and each of them has a specific identification code assigned to it. Samples are printed in official Pantone publications available worldwide. PMS is subject to copyright, so it is not implemented in open-source or lower-cost graphics software.

Why to convert pantone to cmyk and cmyk to pantone?

Most printing companies prefer to use CMYK colors as it is cheaper compared to printing with Pantone colors. Hitting Pantone colors within the CMYK color model can be difficult, but there are color bridges available on the Internet that list a cmyk value for each Pantone color. Using these charts is problematic though so it is easier to search for colors via our pantone to cmyk converter.

Spot colors vs Process colors

Spot colors have unique markings and are created by ink that is specifically blended. Process colors are created by cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks that are mixed when printed to create a color spectrum. Process colors are best for photo printing and spot colors for printing logos or t-shirt designs.

Pantone Coated and Uncoated

Paper with a glossy surface that is coated absorbs minimal ink and paper without a glossy surface that is uncoated usually absorbs a greater amount of ink. Coated and Uncoated Pantone colors, because of these paper characteristics, are mixed differently to look their best.
