Hi guys, I am looking at buying the pantone plus essentials - totaling £160 for the set of 6 plus a free Geo coated guide. A good price it seems. I'm pretty aware of how their used. My question isn't really so much of a question but rather a search for someone to make my decision for me as to whether to get them or not as it's a lot of money. At the moment, I am a student. However, I'm finding that even as a student, I'd feel better informed having the pantone guides for a) knowing how it works before hitting the industry b) Better determination of CMYK (In other words, I prefer swatching for a colour than hitting the eye dropper tool on the computer and going down the printing a test -> readjust -> test ->readjust. Granted there are callibration issues between screens, printers etc but when using my tutors swatches, I find they generally are close enough if using Uni or external printers c) When my freelance requires spot colour (as yet my clients have been small and not budgeted for that luxury.. Soo.. Shall I get them now or wait until I'm a bit further in my career? I can spare the money but I need someone to free me of my guilt.. I do love them though..
