Hi Chuck,

I'm sorry that we were unable to release our metallic thread as scheduled. The latest is, A is scheduled in dec and D in feb. What happened was, we were all prepared to release 200+ colors metallic in sep right after ICAST and some samples were already sent out, but we found color fastness of metallic could be much improved to be like that of nylon thread's. Since then, we delayed release schedule to achieve this unprecedented level of color fastness and have been on test for a few months now. Once released, majority of them will come with LIFETIME GUARANTEE OF COLOR FASTNESS which we really want to have in metallic thread. I'll have all colors updated in our homepage and let you know once they are finalized, which should be early next month.

Thanks for your interest and patience.

Gabriel, I am building a rod for someone wanting the Carolina Panthers thread color on the guides and decorative wrap.. The team colors are ...

HEX COLOR: #0085CA;
RGB: (0,133,202)
CMYK: (100,10,0,5)
PANTONE: PMS PROCESS BLUE C


The teal blue in STWRAP NCP looks close. Just wondering how much it will darken when finish is applied.

Hi David,

Here is color numbers of our NCP Teal Blue.
RGB (0, 149, 198)
Hex 0095C6
Pantone 17-4540

This is side by side comparison of 2 colors. [scontent.ftpa1-1.fna.fbcdn.net].

Before/after finish epoxy applied on black blank [cdn7.bigcommerce.com] It looks to me Teal Blue after epoxy is even closer to the one you want to have, if you build on dark blank.
Thanks.
