Pantone Matching System (PMS)
Last modified: Sunday, September 01, 1996 

A popular color matching system used by the printing industry to print spot colors. Most applications that support color printing allow you to specify colors by indicating the Pantone name or number. This assures that you get the right color when the file is printed, even though the color may not look right when displayed on your monitor.

PMS works well for spot colors but not for process colors, which are generally specified using the CMYK color model.
