PMS (Pantone Matching System) Colors in Thread?

Your logo may be designed with PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors, a system where a specific reference number is associated with each color. If it’s important to maintain these exact colors for your embroidered logo, you can get an exact or close match in embroidery with a little extra work. Check with your embroider to see if the PMS colors in your logo are available in thread colors. Many thread colors are assigned a PMS number but there are more PMS print colors than thread colors. Sometimes more than one thread color is listed as a close match. This may be because there isn’t a perfect match or more than one match may exist because thread is available from different manufacturers. If more than one color is listed as a possible match then you might want to have your embroider order more than one thread color to see which color will work better.
