Promoting with Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year

Last week, Pantone announced their 2015 color of the year—Marsala. For those of you who do not know, Pantone is a color matching system that is used most frequently in printing. You may remember us talking out PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors recently in our “Promospeak” Glossary. We use this system so that we can accurately match the color you want your imprint to show in. The color of the year is named after the deep red wine, Marsala. It is an earthy color with dark red hues and hints of brown. This rich color has the ability to make a statement and presents a warm feel.

I think it  is versatile and will pair well with other colors.  The tone … Read More

Time proved that the peace that followed WWI was short lived and America was … Read More
