Spin the Wheel of ColorWhat colors work best together? Start by reviewing the principles of the standard Color Wheel, which organizes the color spectrum (representing the actual 16.7 million available color shades) into an easily usable format.
Once you know what you are looking for in color blends, you can review the PANTONE® color chart of a printer to see if it meets your business needs.
Primary colors refer to red, blue and yellow and form a triangle with each other.
Secondary colors are located midway between the primary colors.

Once you've decided on your basic color scheme, zero in on specific colors from the industry's most recent color forecasts, from resources such as The Color Association of the United Status (CAUS), The Color Marketing Group, or PANTONE to ensure your choices are in line with upcoming color trends.
