Thanks moon- the only problem with this kinda chart is graphics, some cards aren't made to convey the correct shades of all colors. Still saved the PDF file- :mpup


Starting at the bottom...

It Is A Huge File...

I was going to take it to work last year and run it off, just for the number comparisons... I did't have a spare box of paper!

I wouldn't rely on the paint chips on the file, work with the Standards and cross reference them with paint brands. Or brands vers brands.

Printing out paint chips would be a really bad idea if you don't have a color printer that's calibrated. I'm sure there's only a few who will ever read this who has a printer that prints 100% accurate colors.

If you have an iphone, I highly recommend the iModelKit app. It comes with color charts, paint mixer, scale effect, a notes section and a lot more. Best of all, it does come in a free version.

I don\'t lag. I own so well, it takes the server a few second to figure out what I just did.
