Resources/ Graphic Design - Spot Color Vs. Full Color

What’s the difference between spot color (Pantone inks) and full color (CMYK) printing?

Both terms apply to print jobs that are being run at commercial print shops. Spot color is produced with Pantone Matching System (PMS) inks and is typically used by a print shop when you are printing a piece with just a few colors, such as stationery items. Full color (CMYK) printing uses four or more colors to reproduce color type, images or color photographs.
