• Colors

    The Hardin-Simmons University logo should always use the purple and gold hues as specified on this page. CMYK color mixtures should be used for all 4-color printing.

    In 4-color printing, ink will appear differently when printed on coated (glossy paper than it does on uncoated (non-glossy) paper. Please ensure that the correct color values are used for the type of paper that it will appear on.

    The RGB values are also shown here for any digital use, along with the hexadecimal codes for web/online applications, never for official printing.
