    Our colour specifiers are very old (soon to be updated) and I'd appreciate a second or third opinion from someone else's eyes.

    I've got a two colour job to do on coated stock and would like to use Pantone Black for the body copy as it appears, to my eyes, to be a tad warmer than a conventional black. Is that right?

    Although I've used plenty of spot colours before, I haven't used a Pantone Black before. I can't use one of the dark warm greys as it would probably stray a little too far from the guidelines.

    Your thoughts are much appreciated.

    Cheers

    using my 3 year old swatches (in good condition) I cant tell the difference on the coated stock version but there is a noticeable difference on the uncoated stock – Pantone Black is a duller colour
