Digital Color Standards and Communication

PantoneLIVE Design enables designers to define, create and communicate color palettes based on specific substrates, print processes, inks and application methods. These colors can be shared with the production supply chain utilizing a cloud-based repository. Brand integrity and design intent are assured across a variety of print surfaces, production processes, departments and geographies delivering expected results.

Benefits:

  • Select colors that are achievable across all desired substrates
  • Eliminate ambiguity in communicating color
  • Improve visibility to performance across an increasingly complex supply chain
  • Get to final approved color faster
