A Pantone shade is a part of a numbering system used to match and identify colours. Pantone colours are able to replicated exactly. Big companies have specific shade of a colour referenced by a pantone shade number (eg - CocaCola red is a specific shade). These pantone colours are identified by a numbering system which contains 3 or 4 numbers followed by a suffix such as C(Coated), U(Uncoated) or M(Matte Paper). Yes you can give us a pantone shade number, Hex (colour) code. A point to note is that Paper and fabric pantone numbers differ as the medium of printing is different. For sublimation tees we can match any colour.
