Consistent Communication
Need to design a logo in Peoria, but print in Paris? Create fashion in Miami, but dye fabric in Mumbai? Produce packaging in 10 different cities around the globe, all meeting one set of specs? Pantone Connect lets you do just that with color data that can be communicated and output consistently at every stage of your design and production process.

Shared Vision
What two people mean when they say “dark red” can be a world apart, even when there’s no language barrier. But when you identify a specific Pantone color, with its own production specs, there’s no need to describe your color in words. The proof is in the swatch or digital master data. Using Pantone Connect is the quickest way to share your vision with others and ensure everyone’s on the same page, saving time and costly rework across your entire design and production process.

Achievable Results
It’s no wonder that designers – not to mention printers, packagers, and brand managers – around the world rely on Pantone to communicate and manage color. They know that most projects, even digital ones, eventually get produced in the real world and what was imagined online has to look the same in-person for the process to be a success. Rely on Pantone colors in Pantone Connect to express your boldest vision, knowing it can become a reality when projects move out of the digital realm.

World Respected Brand
More than ten million designers, brand managers and producers worldwide rely on Pantone Products and Services to help define and control color from inspiration to realization. No wonder Pantone has been a go-to company for insiders to share, communicate, and reproduce color for decades. Now, as more and more people become independent designers, Pantone has become a go-to source for a wider cross-section of the design world. Pantone Connect puts the historic power and know-how of professional designers in a single, easy-to-use platform for experts and beginners alike. Experience Pantone Connect for yourself and see why Pantone is one of the world’s most trusted brands when it comes to color.
