Hex Color file to match PMS color chart
Hexadecimal Colors - What are they? How can I use them in shopVOX?
Designers and developers use HEX colors in web design. A HEX color is expressed as a six-digit combination of numbers and letters defined by its mix of red, green and blue (RGB). Basically, a HEX color code is shorthand for its RGB values with a little conversion gymnastics in between.
So what....what does that mean in shopVOX terms?
There are several areas in shopVOX that you can add colors to help create a color code key that works for your team.
