Pantone® gold and silver for printing

Where can Pantone® gold and silver inks be used?
Pantone® gold and silver inks are used in all the printing technologies, however, when it comes to Pantone® shades, the dominant application is offset and UV offset printing.
Depending on a Customer’s needs, these inks are matched in terms of intensity, abrasion resistance, adhesion and other parameters. We can also improve adhesion of varnishes to the ink layer.
Metallic inks imitating gold, silver and their colourful shades are a unique and special phenomenon in a colour space, especially since there is no competition for them on the market.
Pantone® inks have their standarised, unchanging colours, which translates to their utility in a moment where an exact replication of a given shade is necessary, regardless of the equipment used or a printed surface.
Pantone® gold and silver inks for coated paper and more
Each gold and silver ink from the Pantone® guide has its individual code (number) which makes it easy to find a specific colour. However, he same code may be described with different symbols. It means how each ink will appear on a selected substrate.
A C symbol means ‘coated’ paper while U means ‘uncoated’ paper and ‘M’ means ‘matte’. For the right colour choice, it is important to know which type of substrate will be printed.
