|calibrated lookup tables for licensed printers
A Look-Up Table is a specially created set of color data developed by Pantone color
scientists that most closely represents the colors in the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM
on a specific printer model. When a printer is PANTONE-calibrated, the printer manufacturer
has engaged Pantone to develop this specially optimized color data so that the customer
can get the best possible representation for the PANTONE Solid Color standard on
coated stock. We take into consideration the specific driver/RIP, device settings,
ink set, color engine and paper stock used when we develop this color data since
all these factors can affect color output.
Below we have provided printable PDF color charts for all PANTONE Calibrated devices.
The PDF color chart contains a set of color data (in CMYK or RGB) specially created
for the device.
You may also consult your printer manufacturer to obtain additional application
support files (I.e. Color Palettes for Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe
Indesign, Macromedia Freehand, CorelDRAW, etc...) or visit their web site for additional
PANTONE Color Support for your printer.
