The Color Hive

In honor of Earth Day, I created the ‘Color Hive’ to share with you:

If you can’t quite put your finger on what this reminds you of, here’s a tip:

I’ve abused plenty of MS Office software to do my ghettodesignwork DIYing stationery, and in the process wasted a lot of time/scratch paper/ink to get the colors just right. Colors / shades on the computer screen can be quite different than what each printer produce, so printing this as a guide may be helpful in minimizing the steps and waste to get that perfect color.

*Originally I had made this in a full page PDF file for another free download, but I recently had to reimage my computer and I lost most of my templates in the process. I almost didn’t post this but I figure it may still be useful if you print the top image.

Enjoy, and happy Earth Day!

    Thanks, Green Tea! I’ve also wasted a lot of time trying to match computer screen colors to print colors, so this is very helpful. 🙂 Happy Earth Day!

    What a great idea! I didn’t even think to do something like this, so we only have about a billion shades of maroon in our wedding… 🙂
