Pantone colour week 11 2017

The Pantone colours presented thus far have all been marked “U”, for uncoated paper, implying that what the graphic artist sees on his or her paper colour swatch is what the colour is actually going to look like in print.

Thing is, however, that my Pantone colour swatch (below) is printed on coated paper, and colours are, therefore, marked “C”, so actually only have an on-screen representation of what an uncoated version of Pantone 430 will look like in print.

You may think these things really do not matter, but believe you me, they actually do.

Then again, who in their right mind prints anything these days anyway.
