Special Corporate Color Matches – PMS Matches

PMS is an abbreviation for Pantone Matching System™. These are numbered swatches similar to paint chips. Art departments and manufacturers worldwide work from these PMS numbers. Since we are printing on many different types of surfaces and surface colors (black, blue, yellow, orange, etc.) exact PMS matches are not guaranteed. Most of our vendors charge for PMS matches. Please inquire for charges on items you are interested in PMS matching and for pricing.
