Official BSA Color Codes - Help

Recommended Posts

I think what you need to be asking is "what is the Pantone color shade number"...Pantone is the standard in the printing industry...e.g., if you tell the printer, "Pantone 345", you will get the same color, no matter who does the printing.


That being said, I don't know what they are...maybe someone at BSA (Publications division?) can help you.

I noticed the guide is a bit dated...has the old uniforms in it...perhaps if you called Irving, they can provide the new colors...


Second thought...if you have the color you're trying to match (pants?), try taking them to a print shop and see if they will let you borrow their Pantone color swatches (similar to paint chips)...then you can match it up as best as you can.(This message has been edited by scoutldr)
