Spandex has created a free app that gives customers access to digital colour swatches for thousands of colours from leading materials brands at the touch of a button.

Available in seven languages and tailored to the specific product portfolio of each national sales office, the Spandex ColorBox app features all of Spandex’s brands, including 3M, Avery Dennison, Orafol and ImagePerfect. Products are searchable by range, colour, product number, name or application.

In addition to the collection of colour swatches, the app provides customers with easy access to product information and technical data sheets and connects directly to the Spandex online store for more information about the chosen product or range. It also offers customers a colour match feature, in which the app to find the closest colour match to a users’s photograph of the reference colour within Spandex’s range of vinyls. 

‘The Spandex ColorBox app is a valuable business tool for signmakers, graphics producers and wrappers,’ explained Leon Watson, general manager at Spandex UK. ‘Effectively this enables them to carry the full Spandex range of brand swatches in their pocket, making it easier than ever to support conversations with customers about media selection.

‘The range of coloured vinyls is expanding continuously and physical swatches quickly become outdated, while the Spandex ColorBox app will be updated monthly to ensure it reflects the very latest product portfolio. Instant access to product specifications will help customers confidently choose media that is fit for purpose, and with ‘click to buy’ access to the Spandex online shop, we’re offering our busy customers unique functionality that will help to minimise the time they spend selecting and buying vinyl products.’
