Default Pantone Colours

I moved this thread here rather than continue about phones and plates.
Pantone colours are just numbers that relate to a colour - they have now started putting the L a b reference of that colour in photoshop . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lab_color_space

L a b
C55.43-39.97-50.71M47.3975.77-3.8Y90-4.3794.6K16.910.26-0.43
The above are the CMYK lab readings we now have to acheive when printing rather than just how thick the ink is (densities) .
Multinationals now specify Lab colours for their corporate colours and can be matched in plastic and fabric etc
Hope it is of interest
Peter
