How can I find L*a*b* values for PANTONE Colors?At 11/07/2000 08:54 AM we wrote - Due to the variables outlined in your message (i.e., reading angle, polarized light, etc.), Pantone does not publish a list of these values.
As these conditions can vary from instrument to instrument or from user to user, it is best to provide your own data by measuring a current printing of the PANTONE formula guide. Once you have established benchmark data, you can then use this data as a comparison tool.
We hope you find this suggestion helpful.
