Introducing the new Pantone Trade and Save scheme

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Pantone ‘Trade and Save’ programme, which offers existing customers the chance to trade–in their old Pantone guides, in exchange for up to £100 cash back when purchasing a new Pantone product.

The Trade and Save incentive scheme makes it easier for designers, product managers, printers and all other colour decision makers to stay up-to-date with the latest graphics products from Pantone – the world leader in colour standardisation and communication tools.

“The Trade and Save incentive scheme has been devised to give people that value colour as much as we do, the encouragement to update their Pantone guides,” says Simon Prais, Technical Director at Color Confidence.

Simon continues: “If you don’t use the latest Pantone products, you could be losing time, money, or even clients, through mistaken specifications or inaccurate colour reproduction. Over the past five years, 644 Pantone spot colours have been added to the Pantone Plus range of graphics guides, which now includes a total of 1,761 colours.”

Pantone prides themselves on using only the finest paper substrates for their multimedia graphic tools. But the fact is, all paper stocks yellow over time, from exposure to air or sunlight, or simply from use, which changes the appearance of the ink’s colour. For this reason, Pantone recommends replacing your colour guides frequently.

The Trade and Save scheme is made up of three easy steps.

  1. Purchase a brand new Pantone guide from colorconfidence.com – Eligible guides are included in the table below
  2. Send Color Confidence the old Pantone guide in the post – A £5 flat rate postage contribution will be added to your cash back amount
  3. The discount plus postage contribution will be refunded into your account – The guide is then verified and the discount is given (within 5 working days of receipt of the guide)

The Trade and Save scheme applies to purchases of any of the following Pantone Plus guides:
