Spot on colour matching for Vintro Paint Charts

The UK’s fastest growing manufacturer and distributor of chalk paint has been working with Wood Richardson to produce a paint chart that truly reflects all of the different colours they offer.

Vintro Paints, which supplies chalk paints for the fast-growing market of painting furniture, was established 18 months ago to fill a gap in the UK market. The business has quickly expanded and now supplies to clients across Europe.

Jason Clare, Managing Director of Vintro Paints said: “We needed a Paint Chart that accurately represented all of the paints we sell. We had created a chart with another supplier but some of the colours didn’t match our paints closely enough and I had resorted to hand painting labels to stick onto the chart in order to show the right colour. Wood Richardson has managed to replicate our paint colours perfectly and this is exactly what we needed so that our clients are confident when selecting colours from the chart and get a product that meets their expectations.”

Simon Pirie from Wood Richardson managed this outcome by analysing the closest CMYK values of the actual paint colour and then mixing with Spot colours and metallic inks in order to get the exact colour match. Wood Richardson then printed the charts on their Heidelberg 6 Colour Press in time for Vintro Paints to use to meet a large Finnish order and Vintro Paints are delighted with the result.

Run Tim Run!

On Sunday 23 April 2017, our very own Sales Manager Tim Falconer completed the Virgin Money London Marathon to raise funds for Round Table Children’s Wish, a charity which makes wishes come true for children suffering from life-threatening or terminal illnesses.

Tim joined a team of 40 runners, who together took on the 26.2 mile challenge whilst raising vital funds to make dreams a reality.

Samantha Read, Fundraising Officer from Round Table Children’s Wish said: “We were so pleased to have Tim in our London Marathon team. He worked hard to train and fundraise for this event in order to support a cause that is close to his heart.

“Training for a marathon is no mean feat, but to also have to find ways to raise sponsorship in your spare time too – it can be challenging. I know that any support that you are still able to give to Tim would  be very much appreciated.”

Some of the wishes that Round Table Children’s Wish are delivering in the coming months are supporting a 5 year old boy to visit London Zoo and arranging for a 15 year old girl to meet Niall Horan, previously of One Direction.

The team at Wood Richardson are incredibly proud of Tim who completed the marathon in just over 6 hours. Well done Tim!
