Lesson 5. Using Points and Paths > Adding PANTONE® Colors

Adding PANTONE® Colors

FreeHand comes with a number of spot and process color libraries that are commercially available color-matching systems. The PANTONE® Color Matching System (PMS for short) is a common color system used by most commercial print houses in the United States. By choosing a color from the color library, you are assured that your colors print correctly. Picking a color by viewing it on your screen is not recommended if you are outputting your document for print. You should purchase a color book and choose your colors from there. Once you pick your color from the color book, you can select that color from the FreeHand color library. In this exercise, however, you will select colors without regard to how they will appear when printed.
