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 ...

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.

Update: As @Rafael pointed out in the comments, the web picker from Pantone doesn't accept RGB or HEX. So here is:
