Default Pantone Color chart, is there one available

Is there some type of general pantone color chart you can buy, to compare pantone colors to embroidery thread colors, to match them up more accurately?

For example, if I wanted to match up Budweiser red, or Home Depot orange, or Packers green or yellow, what is the easiest way to do this, and find the embroidery thread to match it. Those are just examples of course to make it easier to understand what I'm talking about, as they're copyrighted I'm sure.

All help appreciated.

Do you have the thread chart from your thread manufacturer? They generally have their color number in addition to the panton color number. If there is no direct match in thread though it would be nice to have a pantone chart and visually match it to the closest thread color. How many pantone colors are their though? Have to be a pretty large chart huh?

That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you very much. Now I just have to find out how to get a hard printed copy.

Thanks again.

Not to sound dumb,but I was a printer for 25 years. That was before I got layed off and went into embroidery. Just find the nearest commercial printing company and ask them to get you one from their ink supplier. You will have to pay for it though. They come in very handy. I kept mine from when I was a printer

Color matching with Pantone Color charts and embroidery threads is not yet a perfected science. Instead we have color coordination specialists who use Pantone Charts to compare to thread swatches and choose the closest option based on the tone as well as the hue of the color in question.

also with embroidery please keep in mind that just because you picked a color, you really need to make sure the direction you sew the thread allows for the thread to actually LOOK like the pms color you selected.... if it really matters.
Personally I messed up 3000 hats for AMEX once when they changed their logo to the solid blue box.. we picked the thread, but the angle we sewed it actually changed the color you saw. Light changes the color every 15 degrees we learned the hard way.
Embroidery viewed head on 3 ft away in natural light. sounds crazy but we actually had to redo the 3000 hats and change the angle of the fill to make the blue LOOK like the pms color demanded.
