What does the PANTONE EXTENDED GAMUT Coated Guide
mean to pre-press and printers?
PANTONE EXTENDED GAMUT printing provides for significant efficiencies in the pressroom. If not printing spot colors, one can decrease changeover times, lower ink consumption, utilize fewer plates and increase
consistency and quality of a press run from beginning to end.
When using the PANTONE EXTENDED GAMUT Guide, you should use the XG standards as your targets when converting PANTONE Spot
Colors into EXTENDED GAMUT process printed colors. XG standards are “achievable” for the given printing process, substrate and ink system.
The screen percentages in this Guide are included to provide an indication of a starting point for a printer to use to achieve their desired color. However, it should be understood that your unique workflow will dictate the final separation values.
