How can I match Pantone Colors without a PMS book?

How can I match Pantone Colors without a PMS book? Topic: How to write a book in 24 hours pdf
May 26, 2019 / By Felise
Question: I'm dealing with a printer (that shall remain unnamed) that has sent me back three TERRIBLE proofs with HUGE color shifts from my original design. (I had even included a PDF of my original design for them to go by and have an easier time of matching) It's not a difficult design, and I have NEVER EVER had such terrible proofs come back. They say right in their policies that they won't accept color shifts in the final product as a reason for asking for a refund, UNLESS PMS numbers are provided. I've usually avoided sending Pantone matches because 1. I don't have a PMS book - and 2. I usually don't need such precise matching, and a slight mismatch isn't a big deal... Ya know.. Pencil Yellow vs. School Bus Yellow... whatever... as long as it's a golden shade of yellow. The proofs I am getting back show, in one, black shifting to a middle grey... and in another - a royal shade of BLUE shifting to a shade of grey... So, I need to provide Pantone numbers, but I want to make sure I'm providing the right colors... How can I do that without a Pantone book? OR Is there any convenient way of getting my hands on Pantone swatches in the next 24 hours (without ordering them) so I can write down the numbers I need for my design? THANKS for your experience!

Open the image up in Photoshop, use the eyedropper tool to select the color, double click the color and select "Color libraries". It'll show you the PMS colors/numbers you selected.

I am prefer a clean match at wrestlemania. John cena might going to win the match again. I want to see surprises. I want to see something we had see over 2 years. The rock beat him in the ring fair and square. BQ yes because Vince had been doing this business since 1980s. I know Vince had make wwe interesting all the years. But we need new boss now. Because hhh said he would make this place better again. He wants to gave the young guys a chance and he also wanted to fix the tag team division. I said finally we have someone really cares about the business. And change back to tv 14. It could happened because he is attitude era. Now I want hhh to take over wwe right now.

I honestly don't care if the Cena and Rock ending to the match has a dirty or clean finish, as long as the outcome makes sense. But then again, maybe I'm asking for too much as nothing makes much sense in WWE as of late. With that said, I hope that if the ending indeed has some sort of run-in, that this interference actually makes some kind of sense into their current feud. I just don't see why the Miz would run-in in this Wrestlemania. But maybe someone like Eve, Zach Ryder, McMahon, Stone Cold, or who knows, someone with some history with those two in the Rock and John Cena. BQ: I don't think Vince will pass the torch to HHH just yet, as this role belongs to Stephanie McMahon as of right now, and since they're married to each other, then Vince has no choice but to work with his son-in-law Triple-H. But all bullsh*t aside, I think that HHH has been doing a great job backstage, and that's one of the reasons Vince McMahon trusts in him like he has these past few years.

I prefer a Clean match. I would be so pissed off if the match I've been wanting to see for years was ruined by The Miz. BQ: Not just yet. Triple H will get his time but right now I think he is fine doing what he is doing. Vince McMahon has screwed up in a lot of areas but if it weren't him we would not have any of it.

the North America and Canadian hockey schedule are the same pretty much. there will only be games in Montreal if that team gets to that level in the play offs. i agree with the person who said they will be expensive. the canadians r bigger with hockey then we r n tickets there are wayyyy more. i would guess a ticket to canadas worst team *ur opinion* is like a row w at a detroit game....

Bette Originally Answered: Why do leaves change diffrent colors such as orange brown red yellow why theese colors?
To get an answer to the question, you first have to understand what leaves do. Leaves manufacture food. They take water from the soil through their roots. They take carbon dioxide from the air. Plants use sunlight to turn water and carbon dioxide into glucose. ( This is called photosynthesis) Glucose is a sugar. Plants use glucose as food for energy and as a building block for growing. A chemical called chlorophyll helps make photosynthesis happen. Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green color. As summer ends and autumn comes, the days get shorter and shorter. This is how the trees "know" to begin getting ready for winter. During winter, there is not enough light or water for photosynthesis. The trees will rest, and live off the food they stored during the summer. They begin to shut down their food-making process. The green chlorophyll disappears from the leaves. As the bright green fades away, we begin to see yellow and orange colors. Small amounts of these colors have been in the leaves all along. We just can't see them in the summer, because they are covered up by the green chlorophyll. ( This is how we see only green when it is present!) The bright reds and purples we see in leaves are made mostly in the fall. In some trees, like maples, glucose is trapped in the leaves after photosynthesis stops. Sunlight and the cool nights of autumn cause the leaves turn this glucose into a red color. The brown color of trees like oaks is made from wastes left in the leaves.
Bette Originally Answered: Why do leaves change diffrent colors such as orange brown red yellow why theese colors?
Leaf colour is made up of a variety of pigments...which include green (chlorophyll) as well as others called anthocyanins and a whole range of others which can be reds, oranges, yellows even blues. In normal situations chlorphyll is the dominant colour and overpowers all other colours, but in autumn it breaks down in decidulous plants and all the others colours begin to show instead...this is why leaves turn colour gradually. The leaves will gradually break down most of these too before dropping off.......
