The Queen’s 60 Years of Color

In celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on the British throne, Pantone and Leo Burnett, teamed up to create a limited edition color guide (60 copies) to mark the Queen’s fashion-forward color statements.

For over 60 years, Her Majesty has opted for a full spectrum of perfectly color-coordinated ensembles, from the Primrose Yellow she wore at Will and Kate’s wedding in April 2011 to the tasteful Lilac Snow outfit she wore last year during a visit to Northumberland.

The guide was printed by Precision Printing using HP Indigo technology. Comprising 60 images of the Queen, the challenge was matching the colors and printing the ultra short run. Precision Printing used its HP Indigo 7500 Digital Press and the 7-color (CMYKOV) HP IndiChrome on-press PANTONE emulation, simulating PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM that can match 97 percent of the PANTONE Color range, to achieve exact color matching.
