    It's very simple put the RGB values in Photoshop and you have also the CMYK values.

    unbelievable!!!

    ...how dumb all these color experts in this thread are at least.

    the thread starter didnt even specify if it is Pantone „C“, „U“ or „CVC“.

    so how can anybody here name any specific color values???

    all these types look different!

    here is just an example:

    I think request is for: How to make that colour using base inks?
    It has nothing to do with CMYK or RGB.
    Pantone is coming up with so many new colours which you can only make if you have current Pantone Formula Guide.
    I don't have either but I thought just to put more light on question.

    yepp, of course he was asking for color recipes.
    but all these noobs didnt care and are posting silly rgb values.


    btw: it doesnt make any sense to ask for a color formula if you have no visual reference.
    the resulting color depends on density and paper white point too.

    Spider, it's clear your not an expert either, give them a break.
    On press, all the Pantone's versions, C, U, CVC, etc. are all the same ink mix.
    For example, if the pressman is printing PMS 302 on a coated sheet they adjust the ink levels to match the Coated Swatch (C) or Uncoated Swatch (U) for an offset sheet etc.
    As for the colour breakdown, each software will convert is differently too. Adobe comes up with different values than Quark does.

    If you're actually printing a spot colour not just converting a spot to process, it doesn't matter what the colour the swatch is. You could make it solid black just make sure it's set as a spot colour and the name correct. The printer will know what ink to mix and use in the fountain. The U, C, CVC etc is determined by the stock your using, not whether you put a 'U' or a 'C' after the number.

    If it's being run in process, that's a different story.

    If you need ink mix ratios, call the ink supplier.

    I love learning more about printing!

    If I understand correctly, the answer is either:

    a) It's not possible (if trying to convert spot to process)
    b) It depends (due to many variables that weren't specified)

    Is that about right?

    Hi JohnJohn,

    to clarify your questions

    a) It is possible to convert the spot to process, it can be found in the Pantone+ Pastels + Neons book, coated and uncoated versions are both available in the Illustrator library.
    b) It's unclear exactly what neopay was asking for, was it the actual ink mix or just the CMYK breakdown.
