Evaluating and approving color correctly means having the right tools. This kit provides a full-solution for adequate color review of various materials not only within a proper lighting environment but also when sharing with your production partners. The PANTONE Color Evaluation Kit includes the following:

  • PANTONE 3 LIGHT BOOTH: delivers consistent, reliable daylight (D65), home (A Tungsten) and store (TL84) lighting options that will help you adequately identify color variations and metameric effects.
  • D50 LAMPS: are interchangeable with the light booth’s D65 lamps. Replacing lamps is simple and allows for both dedicated daylight sources best used for evaluating graphics and printed works (D50) as well as all other materials (D65).
  • FORMULA GUIDE: The best-selling guide in the world for printing accuracy, Formula Guide illustrates solid Pantone colors as they appear on coated and uncoated paper. Use this guide for logos and branding, marketing materials, and packaging. Includes 1,867 total colors.
  • COLOR GUIDE: includes 2,310 PANTONE Colors on paper illustrating the appearance of color on product, including fashion accessories, home furnishings, cosmetics, products, paints, interiors, and more.
  • LIGHTING INDICATOR STICKERS: tell you at a glance whether your ambient lighting conditions are giving you an accurate visual read of your color. Attach these to your design files so your vendors can be sure they are also evaluating color under the appropriate lighting. Two light-sensitive patches react to your viewing illumination, changing color under different lighting temperatures. Under proper lighting, the two patches will appear to match. If the light is not in the proper range, the two patches will appear different.
