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:


  1. 1

    Identify the Pantone colour you wish to use.

  2. 2

    Look up the colour number, which can generally be found on the Pantone website or at a hardware store.

  3. 3

    Find the Pantone number on the chart under "Pantone Conversion Chart" (see References).

  4. 4

    Write down the RGB numbers that correspond with it.

  5. 5

    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.
