Pantone’s Lighting Indicator Stickers

Pantone’s new Lighting Indicator Stickers ($49 for 40) help you see when lighting conditions are right to evaluate colors in printed projects. Each sticker has two color swatches that match when your light falls in the D50 range and appear more different as you stray farther from D50 (the standard for judging colors). Each pack includes 40 adhesive-backed cards.
