Pantone – NCS: £15 per colour
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01491 411717. These cross references will be made visually and by measurement. We will recommend the closest NCS match to PMS Coated or Uncoated references and supply an A9 NCS colour chip of the recommended colour/s together with a 'stamp' size PMS sample usually same or next day.
PMS colour references should have a C or U after the number to denote Coated or Uncoated, the colours may differ quite considerably. If no information is available for C or U we will assume Coated. In many cases the PMS sample will fall between two NCS colours, in which case we would supply an A9 NCS Colour chip of both. There is no official printed cross reference key from the Pantone Matching System (PMS) to any other colour system.
Pantone is a matching system for printing. The samples have a translucent film of printing ink on a white substrate, while NCS samples are 'solid' colour with no show through of the substrate. We advise that the acceptability of the NCS match to the PMS reference is confirmed before specification or production.
Other plain colour samples: £15 per colour
Samples can be sent to us for colour measurement to obtain the nearest NCS Original notation and / or LRV. We will supply the nearest NCS Original notation with an A9 colour sample as a visual reference usually same or next day. A4 and A6 colour sheets can be ordered. Our colour library includes most paint ranges.
Patterned samples may be measured at extra cost. Please enquire.
CMYK and RGB values for NCS colours can be obtained through the NCS Navigator or by using NCS Colour Scan.
Please Note :
We advise that the acceptability of the cross reference is confirmed by obtaining an A6 or A4 NCS Sheet of the colour before specification or production. We keep A6 and A4 Sheets of all NCS colours in stock which can usually be supplied next day.
