Pantone Color Match Card

Measure coloured materials and match to Pantone Colours with your phone

SKU: PCNCT

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.
