Pantone extended gamut guide is new way of methode for printing Pantone colors.
This Pantone guide is primarity targeted to repro houses, graphic artist and traditionel printer and digital printer with 6-7 colored machines.
More and more printers in espaically packingning and gone form printing CMYK with Pantone colors over to using this 7-colored solutation that in many ways is similar to hexachrome print technique.
This is done to save money and time in the setup of machine and to use less time mixing spot colors.
For many years print houses had 4-colored machines that printed in CMYK and if a customer had a Pantone spotcolor you would use the Pantone Color Bridge to show the customer how their Pantone colored would look when printed in CMYK.
To meet customer demand many print houses started to add more print secteion for spot colors. Often you can find CMYK plus 2-4 extra sections for varnish and spot colors.
With the recents years developemt en printing techniques esoedially in digital printing, the old hexachrome tehcnique is again more and more present.
You will see many packaging and digital printer that uses this 7 colors tehcnique in the extended gamut.
With extended gamut you use a 7-colored technique with CMYK + OGV (Orange, Green and Violet).
This gives you are larger gamut then CMYK and you can get closer to a real Pantone spot color.
The problem you saw with first generations of digital printing pressse was that you could only work in CMYK, but with latest invovations in digital printing it’s now comment to have digital printing presse that work with both 5,6 and 7 colored presses.
The still can’t produce and “real” Pantone spot color, men with the extended gamut technique you come really close.
So the Pantone guide is a very usefull tool for reprohouses, desginer, printers and digital ptiners.
As the reprohouse or designer it’s important to remember to talk to your printhouse before send you your job for print, so you know if you should or can use the extended gamut technique,
That way you will know if you should use the Pantone Formula Guide, Pantone Color Bridge or Pantone extended gamut depeding on the print technique.
