    Hi~ everyone~ :signs101:
    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 :clapping:

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

    Some are in Fellars, we just broke out the PMS swatches and wrote them on our shop chart.
