What is colour matching & how does it work

Many of our customers may not know that we offer a full colour matching service.
This means if you have a colour that you must have again, or are unsure what colour it actually is… instead of flipping through endless swatches, we can find a near exact match to that colour on our high tech tinting machines, and create it for you in-store, there and then.
However, we can’t just match everything that is brought to us in-store, to get the best results try and make sure that your colour matches the following:
  • Painted on a hard solid surface - piece of drywall, wood, plaster etc (something flat is best)
  • Bigger than a 10p coin - our machines use magic eye technology, and if the colour is too small, it may blend other colours.
  • Make sure if you’re bringing in a sample, that the paint is NOT wet, as this will alter the colour of the finish.
Our system will find the closest match it can, show you the accuracy of the match and offer alternatives.

Although these are just guidelines, we will try our best to match colours in which ever way shape or form they are brought into us, although as a buyer, you will have to approve the final result.
