Industry Resources

The FLEXO Color Guide Edition X takes the guesswork out of printing your corrugated boxes - because your ink samples are printed on actual corrugated linerboard, using current millproduction roll stock.

The FLEXO Color Guide Edition X features more vibrant colors as well as today’s safer inks. You’ll see exactly how each color looks on white top (mottled) and natural kraft stock. For the Edition X, all inks from the Edition IX have been included, with the addition of two gray inks. The result - a team effort by glass, ink and box manufacturers - makes it simple for you to achieve the highest possible industry color standards.


The FLEXO Color Guide is $70 USD each (Standard Guide Only) Standard FLEXO Color Guide Edition VIII (Bleached Only) is $22 USD each.
