New Pantone Plus® Neons Colors, also referred to as fluorescent colors, add additional pop to graphic and
product designs. Neons radiate tremendous brilliance and vibrancy because they both reflect and emit light. Neon colors are up to three times brighter than conventional colors: a non-neon color may reflect up to 90% of a color; a neon can emit as much as 300%. Neons have been gaining popularity, especially in sportswear, and Pantone’s research shows that the neon trend will continue to grow over the coming seasons. For the new Pantone Plus Series®, we’ve added 42 new neon colors to the previous range of 14 neons. The new neons start at color number Pantone® 901 and end at Pantone® 942.
Pastels continue to be popular, adding softness and subtlety to designs across all of our markets. Because of this, Pantone® has retained all of the current Pantone® Pastel Colors. In total, the Pantone Plus Series® Pastels & Neons Guide and Chip Book now each contain 154 pastel colors and 56 neon colors.
