Pantone - Navy Blue

Help! I can't find my pantone swatches.

Anyone know what a navy blue is in Pantone? Need it for a print job, not too bothered on the exact colour, but a navy blue is ideal.

Need it urgently! Help! Help! Get out of the pub and the sunshine and into DT!

I like Pantone DS 217-1C

100 40 0 40

Might not be dark enough for you pending what type of Navy your going for..

Thanks guys, I'll send both of those over. I'm looking for a medium dark blue, not too light or dark. It's to go on a bag with a trim of navy blue. I'll probably leave it up to the printer to decide.

Thanks!

^ that is either some lousy humor, or you need to ask your college for your money back.

Never went to college. I know Pantone were swatches made in the 70's to help make universal print colors, and I know designers use them a lot to make palettes.

I was actually hoping to spark some conversation about this. Maybe figure out how to use them. Maybe even hear about a nice program that will create Pantone palettes for me. =)

If a client gave you a pantone color to use when designing their website and you looked at them like they were idiots I doubt you would still have the client.

It's the best way to match colors if you don't have any other values.
