Get cash back with the PANTONE Trade & Save scheme!

Trade&SaveIt’s now even easier to get the most complete and accurate PANTONE tools that you need to get your job done accurately – while getting cash back in the process!

The PANTONE Trade & Save scheme gives you the chance to trade-in any out-of-date PANTONE guides, in exchange for up to £45 cash back on selected PANTONE PLUS products.

Whether you are a designer, product manager, printer or a colour decision maker, the scheme makes it easier for you to stay up-to-date with the latest PANTONE products.

Why upgrade your PANTONE guide?

PANTONE has recently launched some exciting additional colours to the PANTONE PLUS SERIES. The new colour palette has been developed to inspire exploration and creativity.

The addition brings the total colour count of the graphic design PANTONE PLUS SERIES to 1,867 colours.

Also, although PANTONE strives to manufacture products at the highest level of quality possible, the fact is that over time, all papers will yellow and inks will fade. In order to ensure you have the most accurate colour for specification and evaluation, PANTONE recommends that you replace your guides and books annually.

How does the Scheme work?

1. Purchase a brand new PANTONE guide from colorconfidence.com.

Eligible guides are included in the table below.

2. Send us your old PANTONE guide in the post using our freepost address:

FREEPOST: RSGH-HEKB-KTZJ Typemaker Ltd, t/a Color Confidence Spectrum Point, 164 Clapgate Lane Birmingham B32 3DE

3. Your cash back will be refunded into your account.

On receipt of your guide(s), we will check them and arrange for the cash back to be refunded to you within 5 working days.

The Trade & Save scheme applies to purchases of any of the following PANTONE PLUS guides:

June Inspired by Colour photo competition winner announced

Thank you to everyone that took part in the ‪’Inspired by Colour’ photo competition last month. We are pleased to reveal that our June winner is Nandan from London with his captivating image entitled ‘Follow your Dreams & Stand out from the Crowd…’

June winner

Nandan’s winning image ‘Follow your Dreams & Stand out from the Crowd…’

Image Details
Camera : Nikon D7000
Lens : 18-105mm
Focal Length : 18mm
ISO : 10
F-Stop : F/22 at 1/4sec
Location : Piccadilly Circus , London

Nandan is now the proud owner of a Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Lighting System and Rogue Indicator Battery Pouch.

NandanThis image was part of the series “Girl in the City”. The idea behind the shot was to show how busy city life is and how people are busy chasing their dreams. The image was shot at Piccadily Circus, London, so I could use the iconic billboard as the background. As you can see in the background the billboard says “choose your heart’s desire” , it worked with the theme I was trying to achieve. I have made images with similar themes across the city of London, using my friends to model for me.

A slow shutter speed was used to show the movement of the crowd trying to cross the street.

I am a based in London, so most of the images I create are cityscapes around London or showing life in London. I have a desk job which takes up most of my time but I always make sure I take some time out to spend with my camera and capturing London. I am also a travel enthusiast and most of my travel is to places where I am far away from the city life and close to nature capturing landscapes.

To make sure I develop as a Photographer, I took a resolution at the beginning of the year to post 1 photo on my Facebook page as part of Project 365. See the link below to check out my work: https://www.facebook.com/Nandanprabhuphotography

Winning the Rogue FlashBender 2 XL Pro Lighting System will help me to set up my studio, and I could start doing more portrait work. I am really thankful to Color Confidence for hosting such photography competitions and giving a chance for amateur photographers like me to showcase their work, which can be really difficult without the exposure.
