In fact, my printer (http://www.print-services.org/) wants CMYK,
not Pantone, but I was unable to get the CMYK version fully
debugged before the deadline for submission (mid-day today)
so I have had to send them the RGB version.  But I have proofed
it on a CMYK printer at home, and it looks fine, just different
to what I had intended.  Of all of the colours, the dark brown
for the gloss is the least distinguishable from black, so I
would lighten that one next time, and also use a lighter shade
of green for the English name of the dish.  Apart from that,
it seems fine, and we hope to have the final prints (heavy
card stock, laminated, gate-fold) to the restaurant before
17:30 tomorrow.
