What exactly is the Pantone colour scale?
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is the major spot colour used to globally identify colors via a specific name or code. For instance, it enables a table napkin manufacturer in India to precisely match a colour requested by an interior designer in Australia.
Despite the never-ending scale of spot colours, Greenery is the colour symbolizing the strongest sense of revitalization.
It’s the colour of new & better beginnings.
