What Are PMS Colors?

PMS stands for Pantone Matching System.  This system assigns a number to a color and allows us to match the color using that numbering system.

This is how we match colors for all of our screen printed signs.  You can look up PMS color charts online in order to get a PMS number for us.  However, it is important to keep in mind that your computer monitor and printer are not color calibrated the same, therefore every computer and printer may show color in a slightly different way so there will be a slight color variation between what you see on your screen and the printed sign that you receive.  Here is a link for a chart that we find useful, PMS color chart.

If you are not very specific  about the shade of a particular color that you want, many times we have colors already mixed that we can use.  For example we have standard reds and blues.
