Description:

This color chart / color map has 1100 different colors when printed!

1100 different colors when printed! Unlike some other color charts, this one includes no repeated colors when printed. The main chart is now 40" wide to fit any fabric and has additional color sets included on wider fabrics (click different fabrics to see what you will get on each). These extras are also available separately as a fat quarter: Fat Quarter Color Chart Supplement.
My chart has colors selected and arranged to print in organized progressions of hue, tint, shade, and/or tone, and there are 1100 distinct colors when printed on Spoonflower's Organic Cotton Sateen.

Each color sample is .5" x 1.25" / 13mm x 32mm. The main chart is 36" x 40" and there are additional color sets included on wider fabrics.
With the wide range of good-sized color chips on this well-organized chart, a designer can easily find the desired colors for highlights, midtones, and shadows; can see the differences between warm and cool colors; and can choose from a wide variety of pastels, neutrals, and bright colors.

Each color has its hexadecimal color code listed below it. Most image editing software can accept hex color codes. If yours does not, there are many websites that will convert them into RGB, LAB, or CMYK. A digital color chart is available for use with this fabric chart so that no typing is required! To purchase the digital png file, click here: Digital Color Chart File

How this chart was made: I started with my initial 2850 color samples, Spoonflower's color map, and my original 965 color chart and had them printed on Spoonflower's organic cotton sateen. I cut out the swatches, sorted them, and arranged 1100 to create organized progressions of hue, tint, shade, and/or tone when printed on the organic cotton sateen. I had so many colors left over (the new and improved color range is amazing!) that I arranged them into useful sets and added them to the right of the main chart
Some or all of the colors may print differently on other fabrics.
I suggest purchasing the chart on the fabric you use most, or on each fabric you use.

Extra: "Mix" your own colors using my chart and any one of 3 free texture (dither) image files: TEXTURES FOR MIXING MORE COLORS

NOTES:
Many of these colors will print similarly to how they appear on a properly calibrated computer monitor, but others may print differently than they appear on a computer monitor.

I checked this chart carefully for errors, however, the purchaser agrees that I will not be held liable for any problems that arise from errors that may remain.

artbyjanewalker says: I have modified the title and description of my color chart since it is no longer "new", and there are many people using Spooflower who joined since the color profile changes were made and won't even know what I was referring to. I'm very happy that so many people like my chart and find it useful!

artbyjanewalker says: To myinspo: My color chart includes the full range of colors Spoonflower can print. Some fabrics will print colors more intensely than others. To afroniquely: The photos show it on Sateen. I recommend joining the Spoonflower Flickr group for more information about fabrics and print quality: https://www.flickr.com/groups/spoonflower/discuss/ A message to me through Spoonflower's message service is more likely to be seen by me and replied to. I apologize for that; I have been, and continue to be, ill. I don't always see the comments on my fabric design pages.

afroniquely says: Whoa! Bookmarking this for future use. I'm new here to spoonflower, so I have no clue just yet what fabrics would be best for my projects (mostly making clothing like skirts and blazers). Any suggestions from you all on best fabrics for that? And also for this color chart, which fabric is that was used in the pictures?

artbyjanewalker says: Absolutely do order the chart on the fabric you will be using, that is the only way it will be accurate for your projects. Each fabric prints colors somewhat differently.

elleenne says: Jane, do you recommend ordering this on the fabric I will be ordering? I'm working on a line of children's clothing, so I will most likely only be using the organic knit. And I love the photo that thedapperdragonfly posted, I will most definitely use this chart as a backdrop for credited photos if you don't mind!

artbyjanewalker says: I discovered two repeated colors on my main chart while using it today. Replaced one with a color from the supplement and was able to add an entirely new color to replace the other. I've updated both the print chart here and the digital version.

artbyjanewalker says: I just got some of my own fabrics colored with my new chart in V2. I was able to match old colors for the most part, and my new designs came out very well, too. I have begun using my digital chart to select the colors after I choose them from my printed chart--so much easier than typing the hex codes! I had no idea why people wanted a digital version until I tried it myself, LOL!

artbyjanewalker says: Error notice. 07/14/12 I've found a color out of place on the chart. I found that I meant to put D2D1F0, not DED1F0 in the space (swatch DD5). The code does match the color! It is just not the color I had intended to put there. I am uploading a corrected chart now. If anyone wants a swatch of the intended color to pin over the current color on your chart, let me know.

artbyjanewalker says: My new chart is ready--I hope! I did find an error that took a couple of attempts to correct properly. If you already have the chart in your shopping cart, I recommend removing it and replacing it today (June 23) to be sure you get the version with no know errors.

artbyja...

artbyjanewalker says: PLEASE READ! Spoonflower just announced they are changing how they print colors. This means my chart may not be useful much longer. I am working on an updated chart for the new system, but it will take several weeks. Hopefully, my current chart will not be too far off, and I may be able to provide a list of colors to avoid after the change or offer a swatch of replacement colors. I just DON"T KNOW at the moment. I've ordered a new chart for myself along with my original 2800 samples, plus Spoonflower's chart, and I will work around the clock to get a new chart out and let folks know the results of the change.

artbyjanewalker says: A general response to the subject of my providing original files of this chart for people to use on their own computer. Doing so would make it subject to being distributed and printed by anyone. If that happened I would loose my, I believe well-earned, royalty from sales of the chart. It took 3 people (I paid helpers to cut fabric and type) about 3 weeks of full-time work to make this one. I am grateful for every sale of my chart and very glad that is is so useful to so many people! To those people it does not work for as-is, I am sorry.

artbyjanewalker says: I now have the 40" wide version available for printing on Cotton Silk! Many of the colors are quite different on the cotton silk, but the chart still works. There are some purples in the blues and yellows in the greens, and many colors print as softly tinted grays, so anyone who plans to use the cotton silk should be prepared for some color limitations compared to quilting or sateen fabrics. http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/848995 <a href=http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/848995">40" WIDE CHART FOR COTTON SILK</a>

artbyja...

artbyjanewalker says: I've begun proofing more colors to fill in places where there are large gaps in the sequences on the chart. I hope to offer them on a swatch for folks who already have the chart when I have enough to fill a swatch, and I'll see if I can add them to the chart for future customers--not sure of the best way to fit them in!

artbyja...

artbyjanewalker says: I've been using my newly printed chart and the larger color chips are great--I can really see the individual colors without any effort. I have found that some colors are not quite the same as they were on the old 4 oz cotton that Spoonflower has replaced with 3.2 oz cotton. My original chart colors were printed on the heavier cotton. I'll be interested to see if the next chart I've ordered will confirm the change in color (I think it will--I've noticed some color change in my fabrics, too). It is probably inevitable that with changes in fabric, printers, and even ink lots that we will have to expect some variation in the color results over time. The changes have resulted in the loss of a color I use a lot, though, so I may experiment and try to find another to add to the chart to replace it. In my copious spare time!

artbyja...

artbyjanewalker says: I have updated the description of my chart because some people may not have understood that many of the colors will print true to their appearance on a properly calibrated monitor--they don't all print differently from how they appear.

Posted over 5 years ago.

artbyja...

artbyjanewalker says: You are welcome! I was amazed (and appalled) that 75% of the blues I initially had printed all printed as the same color. Many of these were very different blues. I'm not surprised you are having difficulty.

poetryqn

poetryqn says: Wow, thanks for all your hard work, Jane. Now I need to decide which fabric to order this in! I've torn my hair out over blues that disappear against each other so this will be a great help for future work. THANK YOU!!

artbyja...

artbyjanewalker says: I did it in RGB in Photoshop, and the file is uploaded as a png. I've just found out that jpgs can change the colors a bit, so designs made with the chart as a guide and uploaded as jpgs may have some slight color shifting. My original swatches I used to design the chart were from a jpg image, so that may explain why a few of those don't quite match the png chart that is for sale. There is no such thing as perfection...!

greencouchstudio says: This is fantastic, Jane! Would you mind sharing what the color setup is on your original file? (CMYK, RGB, LAB, etc.) This might help us keep the color consistent. This will be a must-purchase for me in the future. Thanks so much for all your hard work!
