Pantone Color Match Card

Measure colored materials and match to Pantone Colors with your phone

SKU: PCNCT

The Pantone Color Match Card works with your phone’s camera to measure and match colored objects, materials, and surfaces to a Pantone Color. With the size and portability of a credit card, this unique solution makes matching an inspirational color to Pantone as easy as taking a photo – at accuracy levels approaching more expensive color-reading devices. Use the Color Match Card with the Pantone Connect mobile app to capture a color, search for a best match, and save your chosen Pantone Color to a palette for designing later in the Pantone Connect Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud.

Color

  • Requires a compatible mobile device, a well-lit environment, a flat single-color surface, and a clean camera lens for best results
  • Color is measured via dual illumination (flash & ambient)
  • When measuring against a Pantone Color reference to compare accuracy, understand that factors such as age, condition, and variation of your color reference will impact results
  • For the most accurate color matching, consider a spectrophotometer such as a Pantone Capsure, i1Studio, or i1Pro3 device
