Pantone Color Match Card

Measure coloured materials and match to Pantone Colours with your phone


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