Month of Color of the Day
September is now available. These files get pretty weighty (by electronic weight), so I’ve split them up by week. When October rolls around the last two days of September will be included there as well.
I added Weekly color palettes so you can plan or use them however you like. The colors seem a bit random when I am putting this together, but when put into a palette, they start to make a lot of sense!
- A Month of Color for September is now out! Sorry this was late, but I’ve added weekly color palettes (at the end). This is the large print version.
- A Month of Color for August is available on July 24. This gives you a week to plan how you will use your Month of Color. August CoD Print Press1
I am making a Month of Color available to businesses each month beginning July 24 and thereafter on the 24th of each month. My Color of the Day post on Instagram has become one of my favorite things to do. Beginning August 1, I will be sending it directly to the inbox of those who choose to subscribe.
This Month of Color version is in the form of a PDF, which could be downloaded for printing or used to display on a terminal or device. These colorful pages are a great way to start a conversation with your customers, to showcase colors in your shop, and to create different ways to look at color.
- Print a week or a month of colors and post them in your shop. These can be conversation starters, without you doing anything more than posting. Listen to how customers react to the colors and the words. Are there color hints for you?
- Put the pages on your device or terminal to rotate. Have them displaying for customer enjoyment or owner/staff inspiration. There is nothing wrong with having things simply to inspire. Are there common themes you could use?
- Create displays using the colors. Pull yarn from your shop to create a weekly or monthly display. Don’t have the right colors? Coordinate! Get input and feedback on the way customers feel about different colors. It might tell you what to buy next!
- Create a wall calendar. Have customers put their names on their birth date photo. Do a drawing each month from birth date names. Get those emails for your shop list!
These daily posts are based on Pantone®’s Color of the Day, which in turn is linked to Michelle Bernhardt’s book, Colorstrology. I post a photo, with the three words from Colorstrology, and the Pantone® color chip. I love this because it makes me think about a different color every day.
Would you like to get a photo in your mailbox every day (these are not print quality) instead of, or in addition to a Month of Color? Go to my mailing list sign up and add that to your profile and start receiving your Color of the Day email on August 1.
