The Pantone system is used around the world to bring consistency to colours, allowing printers and designers to know exactly what shade or tone to use.
One of Herbert's greatest innovations was the Pantone Matching System, which standardised colours and indexed them for ease of use.
Pantone guides are very similar to the fan books found in paint stores, allowing easy comparison and contrast between colours and tones.Colours are divided into groups such as solid colours, plastics and the four-colour range and are each given a unique code. This code can then be used for all future printing and design work, no matter where in the world it's done or the material it's printed on.
