How to send your colour hint

1Find your colour hint

Tell us about your desired colour through a colour hint. It can be anything, as long as fits inside an envelope*. Alternatively, you can send your inspiration or imagery in writing.

For example…
  • A printed photograph or magazine clipping
  • A piece of paper or fabric, or a button
  • A cherished memory, a memorable scene from a film or an excerpt from a novel
*Please note:
  • Maximum size: 105mm×148mm (A4 sheet folded in four)
  • For large objects, please send a photograph
  • Perishables (including food, drink, plants and living matter), valuables and dangerous goods are not accepted
  • Please clearly mark the area of colour reference
  • Due to the nature of our inks, transparent, metallic, white or very pale colours are unable to be reproduced
  • One colour hint can be included per order
