The right tools can make all the difference

Color plays a critical role in a product's success and yet is one of the most challenging and time consuming steps in the design and manufacturing process. Starting with the right tools gives you the ability to accurately communicate and control your color choices so that you can realize your creative vision.

Our plastic chips are the answer to decreasing the designer roundabout from pre-production to final product. The Pantone Plastic Chip provides a physical standard that can be utilized throughout the entire design process.
