    7cp with Equinox - which Pantone Solid colors are the least accurate?

    You will find that Pastels, Colors containing Pantone Purple , some greens and of course Metallics will give the most variance. For Metallic inks we offer Color-Logic as an option. So our 7-Color Process gang runs ore based on CMYKOGV + Color Logic Silver.

    Expanded Gamut

    I agree with Gordo, it is not as simple as choosing a color set. You will need to determine which best fits your mix of colors and graphics, what screening technology you are using and ink set.
