In response to Dawn's request for information about Folded Squares origami paper, Mark said " ...the Pantone color coding is of no consequence to me. To me, that concept smacks more of brand name marketing than usefulness in any coordinated design effort." Yes, it probably has no consequence for most people who use it. However, color matching with Pantone is standard in graphic design where exact color rendition is important. Unless everyone's screen and printers are color matched, the difference in what a color looks like is amazing. In my office we can look at a color on multiple screens and no two are alike, some with great differences among them. When color is critical, the only way to be sure, especially true in these days of working remotely, is for communication to occur with each person looking at her own Pantone color chart. There are probably others but it is pretty much the industry standard.
I agree with your assessment: the colors are rich and beautiful. But the thing that I really like about the single color sided version is that the white side of the paper is just as beautiful as the front and looks intentional in the work rather than appearing as the backside of the colored sheet. I love it and do wish for a slightly larger size. But I have other papers for that--don't we all! Donna Walcavage
