I received PDF artwork from customer,
Colour on screen and printout seems fine, but once imported into Wilcom e4.2, the colours are changed.

PDF artwork:


Imported into Wilcom EmbroideryStudio e4.2H:


I exported PDF to EPS using Affinity Designer (faster than using Adobe Illustrator), then import the EPS to e4.2.

I understand that the final stitching out depends on the actual availability of thread colours, however, during digitising/designing, I would like to see *accurate* colours provided.

I guess I found the issue...
The colours specified on PDF are Pantone codes (311 U and 3125 U)
From Pantone's colour converting page, www.pantone.com/color-finder#/search
311 U gives 1, 190, 219 (RGB)
3125U gives 0, 171, 194 (RGB)

However, Wilcom e4.2 uses (75, 252, 229) and (44, 233, 203) instead.

I guess e4.2 does not have Pantone colour profiles?

Yeah I'm not sure. I have raised an issue with the development team.

Just to point out, most images I received are provided in RGB or CMYK for the colour. This one is in Pantone values.
