matching vinyl to a pantone help needed

Trying to find a colour close to pantone 2395C. Doesn't have to be a perfect match but anything similar would be good. Can't find anything among my swatches here.

Can anyone suggest anything?

Whats the application for? There is a translucent from hexis which is not bad, you could mount it to white and hey presto. Although its only a 3 year calendered

Hi Steve,

it's for an exterior shopfront sign. Cheap and cheerful ( the design and colour scheme looks like an ad for cillit bang!!!! It's awful - NOT my design work I might hastily add lol.) Going to be applied to white Dibond panels.

I had to read that again then, Cillit Bang? My eyes are getting fuzzier by the month. Thought it was a rude word.

Well if its cheap and cheerful, maybe 3 year might work, just spec it at that length of time. Cant you print it?

can anyone tell me if there's an Oracal translucent that's any good? Europoint cannot get me a swatch card !!!!! They don't have any apparently, I've asked for one before and didn't get it. How do you purchase vinyls without swatch cards????

Oracle 8500 Translucent series has a Pink 041 that looks a lot closer than the solid 041 (751 series) when laid on a piece of white material.
