Printing and using the color sampler charts
You can print color sampler charts from your printer to see how the colors, as specified from within an application, will look when printed. Having a pre-printed sample of each color can help you save time in selecting the right color for your use.

The printer's color sampler files are available from a variety of sources, according to the following table:
