The artist I'm working with sent me these three samples. The one on the right is Pantone Aggie Maroon which apparently is a trademarked color developed exclusively for A&M and the one Texas A&M wants to use as the "official" maroon. I think this maroon color (the one on the right) is too violet. Anyone agree or am I in the minority here? Anyway, I'm going to use 504 for my artwork. PMS 504 looks like the dark maroon I associate with Texas A&M.
Someone mentioned PMS 201 earlier. This color is actually the official pantone color for the Alabama Crimson Tide, so it probably isn't the best maroon color for A&M. http://www.d-zignsinc.com/view/pantone.html IMG > IMG > http://twitter.com/aTmSECedeIMG >
