What is Pantone to CMYK conversion?
Q

Faceless Technologies CMYK

Pantone colors are premixed spot colors. CYMK is a process printing system that uses a mixture of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black to produce color.

While CMYK is a much less expensive way to produce full color jobs, about 50% of Pantone colors are not fully achievable in CMYK (see below). This can cause issues or dissatisfaction for your customer if they are expecting a certain PMS color match.

Here are some examples of what certain Pantone colors look like on screen (or in a Pantone Book) and what the CMYK print will look like:

If you are sending a job for full color to Faceless Technologies, please convert all Pantone colors to 4 color process before submitting your order. Also, we suggest checking the PMS color’s achievability in CMYK and alerting your customer about what to expect with the conversion.

Please note that Faceless Technologies has 4 color process and 1-2 color spot capabilities and 1-2 PMS Color options on certain products such as Brochures / Sales Sheets, Business Cards, Envelopes, Letterhead, NCR Forms, Notepads, & Small Flyers. If you are unsure of which process will work best for your job, please contact customer service for assistance.

While the addition of a border may be a nice design aesthetic or an easy way to add bleed to a customer supplied file, it can be detrimental to the end result of your print job. Faceless Technologies highly recommends removing all borders before sending files to print.

Due to the speed of our cutters and our sheet lay-out, borders can make even the straightest cuts look crooked. Although Faceless Technologies often trims borders to perfection, the issue can be avoided 100% of the time if borders are removed completely before submitting artwork.

Any original media (discs, pictures, slides, proofs, etc.) are non-returnable and become our property unless pre-arrangements are made.
