    Pantone Guide. My boyfried got me it and he picked the solid uncoated and coated one... but when I was looking a while back I thought the bridge one would be more useful? hmmm so which is better to have? 'Cos i'll try an exchange this one if the bridge one is better/more useful? Thoughts?! :confused:

    Great pressie Ally, but I'd exchange it for the colour bridge as it will help when specifying and choosing colours for your work.

    Is that your bus up there in your avatar?

    Well, we have all the books here and we use them for different things. When we are designing we refer to the colour bridge more as we can see how colours print and choose the closest four colour breakdown to match the colours we need.

    The coated and uncoated books are used if we get an artwork in to print so we can check our output is as close to a specified colour as possible.

    I would think eventually the best combo for you would be the uncoated and coated colour bridge books. The standard swatch books do have a mark on each swatch to see if the colour is achievable with a four colour breakdown though (four dots under the number) But it doesn't give you the info on the breakdown.

    You can use the colour info palettes in potatoshop and illustrator to check the process breakdown but a colour bridge book is the most accurate.

    Right ok thanks... useful info. Yeah I would definitely like both coated and uncoated bridge books, but can prob only really afford one (well swap) so will prob go with coated then :)
