  • New colours have been added to the front of the guides and books, allowing designers to easily find 294 new means and opportunities for creativity.

  • Replacement chips book pages provide designers and printers with an economical means of keeping books fresh and complete and can be easily ordered at.
  • A lighting indicator tool can be found at the back of each guide, allowing the user to instantly understand if current lighting conditions are suitable for accurate colour evaluation and matching.

  • Pantone Colours are internationally recognised for colour communication and are globally available
  • System supported by worldwide network of Licensees


  • Locate colours chromatically or by number by using the indexes found immediately after the colours or in the fronts of the chips books.
  • Individual chips book replacement pages can be found and ordered when frequently used colours require replenishment.
  • Compare and evaluate colours only under optimal lighting conditions. Use the lighting indicator tool found at the back of the guides or a light booth supporting either D65 or D50 light sources.
  • Over time, any and all papers will yellow and inks will fade. In order to ensure you have the most accurate colour for specification and evaluation, Pantone recommends that you replace your guides and books annually.


  • Use for logos & branding, packaging and colour specification, sharing and evaluation
  • Ink formulations provide the most accurate method for achieving colour on printed materials
  • Solid Chips provide Pantone spot colours in the easiest formats to share, transport or build palettes
