PANTONE Color Match Card
The new PANTONE Color Match Card works with your phone’s camera to measure and match colored objects, materials, and surfaces to their PANTONE Color equivalents, no matter where you are! With the size and portability of a credit card, this unique tool makes matching your inspiration to PANTONE Colors as easy as snapping a photo – at accuracy levels approaching more expensive color-reading devices.
With your mobile device in hand, simply position the Color Match Card over your target color and follow the on-screen prompts from the PANTONE Connect mobile app. In seconds you can save your desired best-matching PANTONE Color to a palette for designing later in the PANTONE Connect Extension for Adobe® Creative Cloud®.
