What does HKS and Pantone mean?
HKS and Pantone colours are ready-mixed colours and are also called spot colours, solid colours or special colours. Spot colours are used to represent colours that are outside the colour gamut of four- or multicolour printing. Furthermore, spot colours are clearly defined depending on the substrate.
