  1. I have it on authority that the Orange is darkening a bit...matching the Bears TBH.
  2. Fun fact: the Charlotte Bobcats used "NFL Pacific Blue" as the textile match for their original uniforms.
  3. They officially called it "Seahawks Blue", but the textile match was called (by Reebok) "NFL Pacific Blue".
  4. Two different colors. Process Blue is a Pantone base ink color, while Process Cyan is a primary color in CMYK printing:
  5. They guy who runs that site admitted to me that he's an expert in SEO. Something (one of the many things) I really need to get better at.
  6. Team Color Codes should never be considered a "source of truth".
  7. That certainly could be true...don't know. The NHL only provides Pantone values; the textile/thread/twiil/other equipment color matches are up to the manufacturers. A few years back, I did assist the NHL with standardizing the official digital/print reproduction document, but it doesn't provide the other specs.
  8. I really wish people would stop citing many mistakes, bad assumptions, etc. The guy's got the correct PMS values there, but most of those custom Hex and RGB values are completely wrong. My site (as I repeatedly state) shows the Hex and RGB values that correspond to current Pantone standards, but a lot of the teams and leagues provide custom values. I track all of those custom values as well; only the Chargers there have the Hex and RGB values correct according to the current logo sheets.
  9. Here's an apples-to-apples comparison of the Chargers' logos...with the colors matching to Pantone Digital specifications: (Hint: the Powder Blues and Golds are identical)
  10. Just ROYGBV. No Indigo. Unless you're counting the Navy base color.
  11. Yes. (I'm also aware that I've continued to Nugget-jack this Colts thread. Sorry 'bout that.)
  12. 100% they were Navy. I was fairly obsessed with those back in the me, the most puzzling color-aspect of it is the shade of "Purple" they was kind of a Magenta-ish Burgundy...check out the bottom stripe - it's NOT Red:
  13. Confirmation at 100% now. Old Red and Orange, new(wish) Pewter.
  14. Waiting on official confirmation, but about 99.99999999% sure the Red AND the Orange are changing back to the previous uniform sets' versions.
  15. Original Pewter (flat version, and metallic): Newer version - flat version and metallic (soon to be old? Dunno.):
  16. Here's one I threw together today...the Cincinnati Bengals' primary mark from 1968-1969:
  17. Don't know if this has been mentioned, but I have been helping Chris with a number of official graphics for a little while now. I gave Chris access to my entire raster library (created from official vector logos and color-adjusted to PANTONE Digital Specs). He can browse through the entire thing and update when he has time. I have a LOT to share; not a ton of time to do it though!
  18. Minor correction here - colors look right but they should be listed as follows:
  19. Just NOW seeing these. Wow. Fantastic job. And, you're even using my estimates for some of the USFL custom colors. The Stallions' colors were extremely's what the official specs were: Red Seq Ink Base Formula % Parts 1 2B Red - FS1714 36.00 2 AOA Yellow - YQ1308 25.00 3 Mix in Black 1.80 4 Varnish 100.00 Gold Seq Ink Base Formula % Parts 1 Yellow - YQ1497 9.40 2 Red Lake C - RCQ1589 1.35 3 Aluminum Paste 13.00 4 Pale Gold 18.50 5 Moly Orange - 58OF637 10.00 6 Metallic Varnish 58.00 I just matched up logosheet scans against current Pantone Solid and Metallic Coated guides to get as close to the intended colors. I have a goal someday to work with Pantone on some of these custom ink mixes and get official Lab, sRGB and CMYK measurements for them. Others include the Gamblers' Red, and the Bulls' Burnt Orange.
  20. "Heritage" is a slightly different shade of Navy than what was used previously. And "Bone", well that's a Warm Gray. Certainly never has been used by the Rams.
  21. What's even more curious, is that this new "Sunset" color is in fact, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Florida Orange/U. of Tennessee Orange:
  22. If you worked at a printing press and are digital designing professionally, then I definitely don't know more than you do about this stuff. I'm just an enthusiast to be honest.
  23. Same with CMYK. Pantone colors (Pantone Matching System/Solid colors anyway) are spot inks; only way to accurately reproduce PANTONE 285 C is to use the following formula ink mix: 37.50% Reflex Blue 12.50% Process Blue 50.00% Transparent White And then, print on coated paper stock. (What the 'C' indicates.) CMYK values are - like RGB values - just simulations of the intended color. (This is one of my many pet peeves these days...too many people think that Pantone colors are CMYK colors. No, they are spot/solid colors. There's a big difference.)
  24. It's not part of the official set of logos.
