Thank you for the compliment. That is a good use for the PANTONE process
guide. I should get one of those. I heard about somebody who was using a
PANTONE color book and set the colors for a document, but the colors didn't
match the colors that other people had. It turns out that he left his book
in the window sill and the sun and heat faded the colors.

Paint swatches are easy enough to get from paint web sites and they have
applications to find schemes for particular colors. So, there is an
economical option too that might work for me in the short-run, but I'll keep
PANTONE in mind if I find myself dealing with a lot of colors.

You're welcome.
