Color Guide Information

The FLEXO Color Guide Edition X
The FLEXO Color Guide was initiated in 1949 by the Glass Container Manufacturers Institute (GCMI), now known as the Glass Packaging Institute (GPI).  Ink samples are printed on actual corrugated linerboard, using current mill production roll stock, taking the guesswork out of printing your corrugated boxes.

  • View of how each color looks on white top (mottled) and natural kraft stock.
    • For Edition X, all inks from Edition IX have been included, with the addition of two gray inks.
