Sher-Color Color Matching.
The Sherwin-Williams Sher-Color Advanced Computer Color Technology system takes precision seriously.

Sher-Color uses a spectrophotometer (or color eye) to match a color sample precisely, taking into account base and sheen to provide a truer result.

You can analyze a color chip or any sample material with a consistent color and finish (not porous, mirrored or high-gloss). You’ll get a match to a color from the Sherwin-Williams palette — and a formula that can be archived for six years.

Mobile Color Matching.

Capture an image with your camera phone. Scroll for the color you want. Press a button. Voila! You get the closest-matching Sherwin-Williams color with coordinating palettes as well as the nearest store location. It’s fast, easy and free. You can also save colors and share via Facebook.

Color Samples.
Sometimes a standard chip isn’t enough, especially when you’re working in larger spaces. That’s why we offer color samples in two sizes: 4-1/4" x 3-5/8" and 8-1/2" x 11". Large-sized samples are also ideal for project boards and client presentations.
