    Pantone PMS color to Oracal Vinyl color

    Hi~ everyone~
    How can I match the Pantone PMS colors to Oracal vinyl colors? I searched the Oracal website but I couldn't find the reference or chart.

    Somestimes client specify PMS color. I have to eyeball it using Pantone color bridge & Oracal color guide brochure.

    Is there a better way to do it?

    I wish I can enter a PMS color = Oracal, FDC or Avery vinyl (closest color) comes right out !!! lol

    I believe Feller's gives compatible cross referencing in their catalog, unsure how accurate it truly is though.

    Thank you joeshaul~

    I didn't notice the color code on Feller's catalog.

    Excellent~

    Now I can double & cross check my eyeball~
