Is there a way to maintain color from Signlab to Onyx then to Printer? I am printing one of the Pantone color but when I export to Onyx from Signlab. The color has different value in Onyx. Is there a way to maintain that? Is there ICC profiling for Onyx?

Also is Signlab 9.1 Print & Cut included Pantone Color matching Module?

Where are you getting your Pantone Colours from?
If you are creating your own from CMYK values or using colours with CMYK values, that is not the best way.
You should use the Option "Find Colour > Look in Pantone Library > Solid Coated.Pal" from the Shop Palette Menu in Signlab. (Coated = Gloss finish).
Select your colour and add to the Shop Palette.

If you look at this colour the colour values are LAB (rather then CMYK). LAB colour values are "Device Independent" which means that input colour profiles are not used, whereas with CMYK colours a change in the input profile will change the output colour.

For more information on profiling and importing jobs into Onyx you will need to try their forum.
