I have a client that would like to use Metallic ink (either gold or silver) for some text and I am wondering what pantone or colour library is used in layouts to help illustrate this effect?

thanks!

Pantone Metallic Formula Guide

This is one instance where a substitute is no match for the Guide. You cannot match these colours on screen, gold appears as a brown, for instance, and there are quite a few different versions of golden hues in the guide.

The colour library will be in programs like InDesign as Pantone Metallic Coated when creating a new swatch.
