Great color wheel palettes to match any color

We have taken the color wheel and opened it up into a linear palette. You can print out any of these palettes to use when you go shopping to match or coordinate your clothing or decor. There are a few choices below, depending on what you are attempting to match. These color wheel palettes allow you to coordinate just about anything, from clothing to rooms to web pages.

They are split into 2 types- RYB (red, yellow and blue) & RGB (red, green and blue).
