Mixed PMS color doesn't match Pantone swatch - Pantone.com

I can't mix ink to match the PANTONE FORMULA GUIDE. What can I do?

At 03/13/2001 11:51 AM we wrote - The formulas provided in the PANTONE formula guide are a guide for blending the colors. If the PANTONE Basic Color inks are manufactured to our color standards, the formulas will produce an ink which will match the color shown when printed by lighography on paper similar to that used in the Guide.

There are many variables in printing which can affect color reproduction including, but not limited to, the following: printing process used, ink density, ink/water balance, substrate, pressmanship, condition of printing equipment, etc. It is not uncommon for slight adjustments to be necessary to match the colors, in light of the above variables.

Thank you for using the Help Center.
