understanding pantone librarys

Had a look on google to try and find out which pantone library for what uses and its not clear. Sent some artwork using process un-coated colours and got a moody printer tell me they need them in solid un-coated. How can I find out what librarys for what situation, I believe they are printing a logo I did onto bags, not sure what material they are? Thanks, Sam

RE: understanding pantone librarys

There are both Pantone Process (4 color process colors) and Pantone Matching System colors.

PMS colors are mixed by the printer from basic inks to match the standard PMS color book.

Make sure that you use the PMS colors on any job that is not going to be printed four color process.

The menu isn't easy to get to for some reason.

Click on Swatches, from the little drop down list in the upper right, select open Swatch Library then select Color Books.

From the list you can select Pantone Solid.

Hope this helps.
