Hi all,

following the guidelines on


I tried to use Pantone colors. For some reason it does not work out the
way it should. When I print the pdf's at my print office, the rgb/cmyk
colors are used instead of the Pantone spot colors.

The print office has spot color capable printing devices (Xerox). I even
got their "Xerox DocuSP solid coated color simulation chart" and used
the color names from it (e.g. 'PANTONE 102 CS" for a kind of yellow).

Somewhere I must be making a mistake. Any advice?

Kind regards,
