Keep A Color Swatch
When painting signs, you may need to mix colors to match a customerís logo. Be sure to create a swatch of the mixed color to keep on file with the job. Paint a piece of plastic or a paper plate with the color you have mixed. If the customer returns to you for a repeat job in a year or two, there is a good chance that the paint manufacturer may have discontinued the original colors you used. You will be glad that you saved a swatch on file so that you can mix your paints to match the exact color.
