    Does anyone have a PMS colour chart for various safety sign colours? I have a clinet looking to match some decals that were originally ordered from Brady, printed on their 113143 grey vinyl tape, the client doesn't have an extra to give me and I don't have any samples here. Does anyone happen to have a Pantone or vinyl colour I could match to?

    Cheers!

    Unless it doesn't matter to you, these colors won't work in canada as the main word is misspelled. That'll throw the whole ting off.

    That ANSI chart is outdated. Brown and grey are no longer safety colours, and most of the Pantones have changed.

    Here are the current ANSI safety colours from the Z535.1 standard

    Safety signs are usually fluorescent because of its brilliance & the fact that they still fluoresce (give off light) during dawn & dusk times. Try the PMS 800 section. But digital printing cannot truly match fluorescent colors.
