When you use Adobe Photoshop CS3, InDesign CS3, or Illustrator CS3 or CS4, a range of swatches in the Pantone Metallic Coated color book have incorrect color values (Pantone 8320-8323). They view and print as shades of pink, instead of the expected shades of muted green.
This issue has been fixed in Photoshop CS4 and InDesign CS4 and Illustrator CS5. For Illustrator CS4 or one of the CS3 applications, do the following:
Create 4 new spot inks named using the correct lab values. Use the Ink Manager (InDesign and Illustrator) to alias the incorrect Pantone swatches to your corrected version. Here are the correct LAB values:
- Pantone 8320 C: 60, -4, 2
- Pantone 8321 C: 60, -12, 12
- Pantone 8322 C: 59, -18, 18
- Pantone 8323 C: 56, -23, 22
