Pantone Capsure

This Spring, treat yourself, your office and your clients to a Pantone Capsure device, to accurately measure colours wherever you are and refer them to the closest Pantone match. This post will explain all the features of the Pantone Capsure and explain how this device can benefit and aid you on your colour management journey.


The Pantone Capsure allows you to confidently and accurately capture colour from any surface and match it to the closest official Pantone colour. The Capsure is loaded with over 8,000 colours from 8 different colour guides and the colours you capture can be directly matched to any of these guides for prime accuracy. The Capsure is ideal for all creative industries; allowing creatives to use the Capsure portably to match any surface to a Pantone colour, create colour palettes or descriptive mood boards for any project.

The screen on the Capsure is 1.75 inches and has a variety of settings, along with providing the page number, sRGB, Adobe RGB, Lab, CMYK and HTML values to the corresponding Pantone guide. The Capsure uses camera technology to pick up not only spot colours, but also can extract multiple spot colours from patterns and textures.


The Pantone Capsure comes with Color Manager software. This allows you to import your colours to the software and create colour ways and palettes. Palettes can be fully integrated and exported quickly and efficiently to Photoshop, Illustrator etc. The standard Capsure is updated via USB, giving you the ability to update your libraries, and is also available with Bluetooth.

Using the Pantone Capsure with any of the Pantone Guides will give you the best opportunity to capture any colour and instantly reference it to your guides, giving you accurate colour management and specification on any project you are working on for Fashion, Home and Interiors or Graphics.
