The History of Pantone
Pantone started out as a commercial printing company based in New Jersey during the 1950s run by M & J Levine Advertising. The two brothers that ran the company at the time hired Lawrence Herbert to work alongside them part time. By the early 1960s, Herbert was profiting in the ink and printing division he was working within, and as a result of the commercial-display division being $50,000 in debt, Herbert bought the other division for $90,000 and renamed the company to Pantone. In 2007, Pantone was purchased for $180,000,000 by X-Rite, which was acquired later in 2012 by Danaher Corporation.
Currently, Pantone is best known and renowned for its Pantone Matching System, a system that countless manufacturers refer to in order to see if the color they are looking for lines up with any color in Pantone’s color space. Pantone’s colors are almost always the colors used in branding, with many even being the military standard. The company’s matching system is standardized in many areas of the world, and this allows for reference without needing two or more colors to be in direct contact to identify a match.
What is a color space?
Pantone uses a color space to help manufacturers match two or more colors, but what exactly is a color space? Simply put, a color space is an assortment of colors. When used in conjunction with physical device profiling, the colors can be reproduced in a physical or digital manner. Pantone’s color spaces are home to thousands of different and unique colors, many of which are used in commercial branding.
Pantone®’s Role in Painting
It is important to note that Pantone does not produce or sell paint. Pantone’s color spaces are home to countless colors that are used consistently by brands all around, making those colors a staple and standard. Pantone provides what is essentially a language consisting purely of colors, each of which can be communicated and designated for specific purposes.
Finding Pantone Colors in a paint is where MyPerfectColor comes in. As a licensee, MyPerfectColor has authority to produce colors from the Pantone Matching System in many different styles of paint, from spray paint to industrial urethane paint.
Pantone Colors are used in almost any type of manufacturing imaginable.
Difficulties of Matching Pantone® Colors in Paint
Matching some colors may be easier than it would be for others for several reasons. When converting a color to an analog paint as opposed to its digital format, we have to consider how the color may look in direct lighting or from specific angles. For example, viewing reds at certain angles in abnormal bright lighting may give them more of an orange look, and similarly, brighter blues may look cyan, or white.
Manufacturing processes, paint capability limitations, may also change the final, or actual nature of some colors, and it isn’t easy to compensate for that, and as such there are a lot of precautionary measures we try to take to ensure that to paint colors we produce will line up with Pantone’s original color as closely as possible.
