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!

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.
