Pantone is an industrial design company that uses a wide variety of colours. Pantone uses its own numbering system to identify colours; its colour list is its own intellectual property. Because Pantone colour numbers are standard, oftentimes people will request certain colours for a website based on Pantone colours. Because web pages read colours in red, green and blue (RGB), these requested Pantone numbers must be converted to RGB.
- Skill level:
Identify the Pantone colour you wish to use.
Look up the colour number, which can generally be found on the Pantone website or at a hardware store.
Find the Pantone number on the chart under "Pantone Conversion Chart" (see References).
Write down the RGB numbers that correspond with it.
Check the colour example next to the RGB numbers to make sure it is the same colour and that you have written the numbers down correctly.
