Research subject: Design Color Chart for Spot Pre-colored Inks as a guide for Offset Lithography Printing. Objetive: Studying the types of color guides and Its efficiency and importance in the print production. - Explain the importance of using Pantone Color Manager program in print production. - Using of the global language of color production. The problem: neglecting the role of color guides as a basic partner in all steps of print production as a tool that coordinates color standards through a special numbering system, color strips and a global language for color characterization, to achieve the high level of print quality in the Egyptian market. The importance: To explain how the color guides types can effect in increaseing the quality of local printing production. - ToexplaintheeffectofPantoneColorManagerprogramin the workflow of within printing houses. Methodology: The types of color guides are explained and Analysis of the Pantone Color Manager program and how to use and connect with the others graphic program to improve the print production workfelow .
