    Default PANTONE MIXING (plastisol inks)

    Is there a "guide" for mixing plastisol inks to a pantone number.. like some kinda formula that will work with most inks, or do I have to purchase the mixing guide from each brand?

    A PDF would be super cool...

    Usually we just mix by eye, having 4 years of colour theory under my belt I usually get it bang on, but we got this corp/picky client now and they want EXACT pantone match.

    Any help would be great...

    You need a mixing system and that mixing system will be brand specific.
