Tool to help reproducing 1 pantone color with 2+colors

Postby GabrielDaigle » Tue Sep 21, 2021 6:29 pm

I am looking for tool that exist that will help to find the pantone color we are looking by mixing 2 others pantone colors ? we are trying to get the closest we can to the pantone color 3262C , we have to work with overprinting so we are trying to find 2 colors mixed together that will be similar to 3262C.

any idea?

Not easy to do on press. You will be wasting a lot of time and ink. Your best bet is contact your ink manufacturer. You will need to give them the anilox line and bcm on the first and second print station. Make sure you get a drawdown from the ink manufacturer showing the first color down and the second color overprint. They will also need to know the substrate you are printing on and whether you or applying a laminate or UV varnish on top of the substrate.

1 jug of experience
2 cups of good eyes
and a heaped teaspoon of trial and error.

Haha, I have never heard of such a thing but if you find one do let us know!
