How to find pantone shades of a particular color?
A client came to me with their logo for a campaign and wanted me to do the collaterals. I did a few thing for her. Now she wants me to give her the names of pantone colors matching the exact two colors in her logo. How do I find the pantone shades for them? Please help! Thanks
Official Pantone Color Finder:
In the long term you might want to get yourself a paper guide. But they are expensive ... www.pantone.com/fashion-home-interiors/paper-products
Maybe you could go to a local print shop or design studio in your area and ask them to have a look at their paper guide.
As @Rafael pointed out in the comments, the web picker from Pantone doesn't accept RGB or HEX. So here is:
How to pick a Pantone color in Photoshop:
- Select your color with the color picker and click 'Color Libraries':
- From the 'Book' dropdown menu select your preferred Pantone scale.
- Pick the Pantone color you like best. (Photoshop will suggest one.)
