pms 343 cmyk value..is this website ok?

i have yet to get a pantone book that gives the cmyk value.....i know, i know, its one of those things every sign shop should have but i have yet to get my butt in gear on this!

i need to print pms 343 (green) and looked online for its cmyk value so i can then go into illistrator and type it in the color chart and i came across this site. anyone with a pms chart know if these values are accurate?

thanks guys!

The real kicker is that even though your Illustrator sliders are going to show you the right "pms" break down - your printing/rip software won't interprute it that way and there fore won't print those perfect break downs. Good luck with that!

Not that I know of. Normally what we have always done is print a solid to process color chart for every profile on that particular material and then using a Pantone booklet swatch match it to what looks best on the sample profile chart. It's a complete PITA but it hasn't failed us yet.
