    I purchased this Pantone set from "Studica". This set is great for graphic design, prepress, and printing. It is a 2016 coated and uncoated collection with more than 120 new pantone colors. Also, you can register the serial number on and download to your computer the Pantone Color Manager for free. It's a pretty good deal. We are so happy with "Studica" and its fast shipping process also.
