    Pantone color groups??

    I am a print design newbie and have a question about pantone colors.
    I wonder if it is ok to use different colors from different pantone groups?
    I mean if I use a color from Pantone process, can I also use another color from Pantone Coated group in same design?
    Thanks in advance

    the different groups represent the appearance of each color on different materials/with different printing processes.

    unless you plan on printing your project on a variety of materials, it'd be best to stick to one palette.

    ::
    Most use either Pantone 'Solid Coated' or 'Solid Matte'...
