McCormick Paints Announces New Sample Color Program

May 10, 2016 – Rockville, MD – McCormick Paints, the east coast’s largest independent paint manufacturer and retailer, launched a new Sample Color Program designed to deliver color accuracy and convenience to their customers. The program features a quart sized sample of premium, interior, zero-VOC paint in an eggshell finish priced at $5.99 each. Available in four tint bases, the McCormick Paints Sample Color can be tinted to match any color, whether it’s from the McCormick color collection, a competitor’s color or any other source, such as linens or a printed photo.

“Customers purchase paint samples with color accuracy on the top of their mind. Our new quart samples allow us to accurately tint our paint to the precise color that our customers request,” explains Casey McCormick, CEO & President of McCormick Paints. He adds, “With McCormick samples, customers can be confident that their final color choice will look the same as the color they sampled.”

In addition to color accuracy, the company recognizes the importance of a simple, convenient sampling process. McCormick now offers Sample Kits priced at $6.99, providing a selection of tools to apply the newly improved sample quarts. The Sample Kit includes a 2 gallon bucket, 3” roller and tray, 2” foam brush, 9’ x 12’ plastic drop cloth and a McCormick can opener, all the essential tools for testing out samples at home or on a job.

Part of the new Sample Color Program includes two special offers. With the purchase of three sample quarts, customers can receive either one free sample quart, or a free Sample Kit.  Customers can receive information on additional sample color promotions by connecting with McCormick Paints on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Houzz.  The Sample Colors and Sample Kits are now available in all 28 McCormick Paints stores throughout Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Delaware and North Carolina.
