Color

An attractive and versatile color palette of 12 colors has been developed for Sigma Chi. The colors should be used in all official print and electronic materials.


Color Formats:
 

  • For printed materials, wherever possible, use PANTONE® colors. These colors are specified for coated and uncoated stocks — coated stocks are glossy in finish; uncoated stocks have a matte finish.
     
  • Use CMYK colors, which is an acronym for cyan, magenta, yellow and black, for all printed pieces that do not utilize specific PANTONE® inks. A CMYK "color" is comprised of various values, or tones, of those colors. 
     
  • RGB colors are created by using a combination of red, green and blue, and should be used for all onscreen pieces, such as websites and PowerPoint presentations.
