InDesign quickie tutorial:  Sending Pantone colours to print


Pantone Matching System ("PMS") colours are very useful for clients, designers and printers alike.  They are a rock-solid standard to which everyone can align their colour expectations.

  1. Clients choose them
  2. Designers incorporate them into their layouts
  3. Designers convert them to CMYK ready for printing
  4. Printers print them

Step (3) is crucial.  Colour accuracy lives or dies in this step.  The printer MUST provide an accurate profile for the conversion, and the designer MUST use it correctly.  That is what I will discuss in this micro-class.

Please understand that I will be glossing over a lot of concepts very quickly here.  Comment below each slide, or contact me directly, if you need more information.
