How TRU Match WorksNeed help finding Mrs. or Mr. Right?

I was looking at TRUMATCH as a possible alternative to PANTONE. Of course, I understand it focuses on process CMYK - so the whole Pantone spot colour area is just not there, and the gamut difference is apparently quite large. Would you personally agree with this statement? How often are you forced by gamut issues to recommend a spot colour? Is it something you typically choose to introduce as a designer or something that actually comes from your client? (excluding cases where their existing logo has a spot colour already) On the other hand, given the extra cost for the client for spot colours, have you seen a tendency for your clients to prefer process colours? If you design logos or corporate identity, do you inform your client of the immediate and future additional costs of spot colours vs process colours, and do you get negative feedback and cost cutting decisions about this? Thanks for your advice
I think both systems have their h"spot " in graphics arts and design. TRUMATCH and PANTONE systems have different applications. If you are working in an exclusively 4-color process (mainly for web machinery printing newspapers and magazines), you'll be OK using TRUMATCH as your accurate and wider guide to achievable colors. However, if your printing job is a 2-color job, you should use a solid-ink system for matching. The same is used for the fifth, sixth, etc. elements in the wider spectrum multi-color presses (such as some hexachromatic lithographic, and most of the web flexographic and rotographic presses). In the past i used a lot of TRUMATCH when working in editorial prepress, nowadays i can't live without PANTONE for the 8-color flexo / gravure proccesses for flexibles printing. cheers
