PMS and Spot Color matching

If you have a specific Pantone or spot color needed for your print job, please contact our Customer Obsession Team for a custom quote! Hotcards will convert all artwork files uploaded to our online website to CMYK format, but can absolutely accommodate your more in-depth projects.

What is PMS or Spot Color printing?

Hotcards uses the CMYK color method for printing our daily print runs, which uses 4 printing plates (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) to recreate your digital artwork files on paper. Pantone Matching System, or PMS, uses pre-determined and pre-mixed color formulas to reproduce your artwork. Each color has a specified number and formula that a printer will use to determine the exact color needed. This system allows for complete color consistency and accuracy between printers and is typically used in 1-2 color jobs, such as logos or envelopes.
