The red colour used in the University logo is Pantone 193. When reproduced in the four colour process its values are 91% magenta, 65% yellow and 11% black for CMYK; and 166 % red, 5% green and 20 % blue for RGB.
On stationery items a second corporate colour is used (Cardiff University Cream) and appears as a band at the top of letterhead or business cards. This is a special mix available only to the University and available via Media Resources Print Unit.
Whereas in commercial printing accurate colours can be reproduced, it should be noted that colour monitors, printers and colour photocopiers will provide a representation, not a true colour.
