Pantone-spiration

Proprietary colors dictate more than just paint and fabric
Implications - While most people associate Pantone with only paint and fabric swatches, the company's Pantone Color Matching System is beginning to influence much more that that.

Everything from cell phone cases and candles to liquor labels and Christmas ornaments are being inspired by Pantone swatches, showing just how much influence the company's color system can have over completely disparate products and industries.
