  • ColorReader color matching device

    I like gadgets. Show me a new gadget and I'll check it out. I just found a cool little device that anyone of us doing custom paint, decals, or even fixing that bit of inevitable hanger rash may find handy

    It is literally a pocket color scanner. After playing around with it I realized that this thing is going to be much more useful than I thought.

    I do custom waterslide decals, and sometimes I have to print on white decal paper. In the past this meant doing a lot of test prints to try and match the background. This device took a huge amount of work away as the scan produces a color hex code that I can use on the background of the decals that should be a close match.

    It also will tell you what brand and color to get from the big box stores when you need to repaint or match a scraped wing.

    I've only just started using it, but I'm impressed so far.

    That's pretty cool. And, only about $60.
