Gold Replacement


Junior Member

Has anyone found on their travels a good solid un-coated Pantone colour that could replace a gold metallic?

Can't decide on a few in a Pantone book so just wondered if anyone had had any pleasing results?

It's worth checking with your printer, golds or four colour representations of gold print differently on each of our machines.

A Litho printer should know what's best and a digital printer should be happy to run some tests for you,

Thanks for the replies, some good suggestions.

Alex, that makes a lot of sense. I think when I asked I meant gold foil, although I did not write this and make that clear :(

In your experience how would a Metallic Pantone stand off against 100% Black?
