Pantone Matching Vinyl

Recommended Posts

Swfla1    0

Hi all -

I have a customer looking for a couple of specific colors. I've googled and searched sites (this one included) and can't seem to figure out how to locate the vinyl I need.

I'm looking for vinyl that matches PMS 471 and 7533.

Are there charts somewhere that matches the Pantone numbers to the vinyl? I sure can't find them.

Thanks in advance for any help along this line. :thumbsup:

Don't have Flexi - using SBE.

Thanks for responding

I guess the question I'm asking is what color Oracal vinyl is pantone pms 471 and pms 7533? Or does any vinyl maker classify their vinyl by pms number?

Here is some info from Flexi. Do not take my word for it. Research some more.

471C

Oracal

Terracotta 851

Nut Brown 751

Nut Brown 651

7533C

Oracal

Cocoa Brown 851

Coffee Brown 651

The "Terracotta" is real close match. "Cocoa Brown" is close but not exact match. Other words, "Cocoa Brown" isn't as close of match to color as "Terracotta" match to color.

Arlon has some similar matches but to me Oracal colors were closer. GL :thumbsup:

Hope that helps.

I have the 2017 pantone coated book- i see that Orange 021C is a base color, but haven't located the color swatch.  I also have the Oracal book
