How to obtain a Pantone colour when screen printing

How to obtain a Pantone colour when screen printing

I’d like to know if there are any primary colour inks that can be mixed to obtain the different pantone colours and where I can find them.

Depending on the brand and type of ink, there are a variety of ways to make Pantone colours.

Here are some examples:

Plastisol inks. Amex produces the CMX line of primary colours; they aren’t on our website, but we do sell them. These consist of 14 base colours which, if mixed in the appropriate ratios, can make almost all the Pantone colours. All the mixing formulas are free of charge and available upon request.

– Other water-based and solvent-based inks. In this case, it isn’t necessary to use primary colours to obtain the Pantone colours, the opaque colours that are available through our website can be used instead. There are no mixing formulas but, on request, we can provide the recipe for the particular Pantone colour you’re looking for.

Do you have a curiosity or a question to ask us?
