PMS color matching

Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a standard color system that many printers and packaging experts use to identify and match colors in logos and designs. There are approximately 5,000 colors in the Pantone system, each assigned a name or PMS code number. If your logo and graphics contain specific colors, the PMS system allows us to match our inks to your design. That way, your custom packaging tape blends seamlessly with the rest of your collateral and packaging materials. 

To specify a PMS color that you want us to use in your design, click the white “Pantone” box under “Select Ink Colors” when placing your order, and enter the custom PMS number.
