PrintNinja Custom Card Board Game Pantone Spot Color

The only way to guarantee 100% accuracy for a specific color in offset printing is to use spot color. The ink color is mixed separately by hand and applied to the finished document via the offset press using a separate printing plate. The most common way to specify a spot color for use is the Pantone Matching System, which identifies colors through a number, such as ‘PMS 165’, which is a burnt orange color.

Spot colors can also be used to apply specialty inks like metallic colors, neon colors, or glow-in-the-dark ink.

This specialty option is available with:

  • Cards
  • Game Box
  • Game Board
  • Tokens
  • Tiles
  • Screens
  • Instruction Booklets
