What are Pantone Colours?
A ‘pantone colour’ is a block colour that is part of a greater catalogue of colours called the Pantone Formula Guide. This catalogue assigns each colour with its own code. What this means is, is that each colour is universally recognized, this method is commonly utilized by industries such as print, fabrics and most importantly, plastics.
So what is ‘Pantone-Matching My Shell’?
What this means for your USB project is that certain styles offered at USB VNMARTS can have their shells custom made with a pantone colour of your choosing. Moreover if you don’t know the pantone colour you’d like, our graphics team can match a colour from your logo to a pantone colour which can be used for the colour of the shell, resulting in a truly individualized end product. For example, below is USB VNMARTS logo. This has been matched to pantone colour PMS 212c. USB Makers can now take this ‘code’ and use it to replicate the colour from the logo when making the shell of the USB.
