What is PMS color code

What are PMS colors?

PMS (Pantone Matching System) are color codes from Pantone. These colors are standardized colors that are premixed with ink to produce the correct color. In the Pantone Matching System (PMS) each color has its own unique code. The advantage of the Pantone color system is that it is universal. This means you get exactly the same color print on every printer around the world when printed on the same type of material. However, this does not mean that the colors will look exactly the same on all different printed matter. There may be some color difference due to different surface or paper types.
