Indeed. The whole point of Pantone, and a big part of their business 
model is the availability of their swatchbook, so that you literally see 
what result you will have on paper with their ink. Even with a carefully 
calibrated monitor, what you see on screen is at best an approximation 
of what you get in print.

In general, if you are going to the bother of using a spot color you 
should truly know that spot color.
