Each year Pantone offers a color of the Year and this year is GREENERY.

Our Team will be integrating green into their work this month for your visual enjoyment.

What is Pantone?   Pantone, Inc. is the authority on color, THE provider of color systems and leading technology for accurate communication of color.   The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another.
One such use is standardizing colors in the CMYK process. The CMYK process is a method of printing color by using four inks—cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. A majority of the world's printed material is produced using the CMYK process, and there is a special subset of Pantone colors that can be reproduced using CMYK.
Think of Baseball Teams or Department Stores, or any logos and uniforms.  They can be perfectly color matched using Pantone information.
Another note from the "color people in the know",  pastels will be making a big comeback in 2017, not your Grandma's sofa!   REUSE, RECYCLE, REBIRTH!
