    Pantone Formula Guide (Electronic form?)

    Hi there,

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum (I really didn't know where else to post this question).

    Is there an electronic version of the Pantone Formula Guide? What I need in particular is the mixing percentages. I intend to manually mix inks to achieve the desired colours.


    I could buy the formula guide (~usd100, physical version), but if there's an electronic version it'd be much easier.

    There's an iphone app ($10), which I downloaded, but it doesn't have the mixing percentages.

    Thanks :)

    I have Pantone color manager app for OSX , its good but you should have pantone color chart (physical one) to know real color shade because monitor can't display it 100% right .

    Yep, Pantone books are a necessity. Best to get a copy asap for printing.

    Use a combination of the Pantone Color Guide on OSX and a physical swatch book.

    would it make sense to import pantone color + books from CC into CS5?

    Could you recommend a pantone color chart book (physical)?
