Official Colors

Drexel University’s official colors are Pantone 294C (blue) and Pantone 7548C (yellow). All printed materials, whether printed on coated or uncoated stock, should match color to the coated Pantone chips. The Pantone Matching System, or PMS, is the definitive international reference for selecting, specifying, matching and controlling ink colors. It is strongly recommended that drawdowns be requested with each print job to ensure that the PMS colors are accurate. The correct and consistent use of Drexel University’s official colors helps reinforce the university’s identity.
