Does anyone have the RGB code for Leaf or Rhubarb?  =)

I’m not sure how to use the Pantone color codes….

If you contact Paper Source customer service and BEG (kidding) for it, they’ll give you their closest Pantone codes for their custom colors.

Call: 1-888-PAPER-11 or Email:  customerservice@paper-source.com

=( i don’t think begging is working for me!  =Þ

according to the customer service agent i emailed:

"Thank you for your interest in Paper Source! Unfortunately, we do not have the RGB code for the colors Rhubarb or Leaf. The colors that we carry are our custom colors, therefore there is no exact match in the RGB or Pantone color charts."

please?  something close??

"Unfortunately, we do not have any close or exact matches for the Rhubarb or Leaf color."

 <font size=”2″ color=”#99cc00″>l3r0wnEyedGurL</font>…..not sure where you live, but I’d take a sheet of the paper into a paper store, one’s like xpedx Paper & Graphics, and ask to look at their pantone book. You can check out their website for all of their locations.  Another option would be to take it to a local printer, and have them try and match it up. I’m sure they would let you see their pantone book.

I bought paper for my envelopes at Paper Source and needed a Pantone code for the invitations, so I popped down to my local copy shop and they had not one, but two books.  After a bit of flipping, I was able to find the corresponding code.  Quick and simple. 

You may also try calling someone – it’s easier to say no via email, more difficult on the phone.

this was the list the rep gave me. he also said they don’t have exact matches for all of their papers but if you have the time, i’d go and check out copy shops as the other posters have said.

Chartreuse: 610U or 611U
Chocolate: 476U
Grape: 273U
Lake: 7459U
Moss: 582U
Night: 289U
Papaya: 171U
Plum: 523U
Poppy: 150U
Red: 200U
Strawberry: 191U
Violet: 270U

And in case this helps, here’s a quick Pantone conversion chart (from Pantone to RGB and hex codes):

I just did a quick search for some of the Pantone codes that tea provided, and while the exact matches aren’t there, 610C looks close to chartreuse and 476C looks close to chocolate.

Thank you wonderful people!

That’s a fantastic idea to check out copy shops! 

Rebecca, thanks for the conversion chart!
