This year Pantone went with a much lighter (thinner) paper stock, and the base color of the paper is much bluer than previous years. When you lay the page over a Press Sheet (or anything else), you can see right through the paper, which makes matching more difficult than it was before. Another problem is the colors in the new book do not go numerically. They go by color group. What does this mean? It means you need to know which color the number is you're looking up, fan the book out, pick the section (ie: light green), and then hunt for the number. Frankly, it's stupid. We update our PMS books every 2 years. All of my Pressmen have put these aside, and are using the old books.
I agree with "Graphics Company Owner". The previous editions were on better and more robust paper stock. Also, the re-arrangement according to "color group" has not helped. This is a radical change from previous editions which went according to Pantone Numbers. Our guys have been using Pantone Guides for over 15 years, and are used to the numerical arrangement. They are finding it difficult to adapt. Hopefully it will not take too long......
The bridge fact is very helpful and great. I always which that their books were better organized so that their numbers were a lot easier to find. However, the product it self is so cheap and fragile. The paper is very thin, almost translucent, and the actual printing of the colors is so weak that it looks like printed from an ink jet printer were you can see the grains. Very. Disappointed from an expensive product that only has it's prestige left.
