LINEN BEIGE VS. WHITE

Recommended Posts

Vinylguy

Just finished another series of color formula tests to try and get an acceptable color match to the "off white or linen beige" color that was apparently

used throughout the 60's and 70's on many original decals. Yet I also have customers over the the past 12 years who have sent me images of their original

hood decals and they in fact look white? Always been a personal choice thing to me and I have an updated color to show for you all to offer opinion on. :unsure:

My plan is to start offering all my 60's and 70's sets in both color selections soon after the lake closes next Month.

 Will have 6 Months at home to update my listings on the website.

 

 Always striving to improve on my products to get them as close to original as possible with my existing technology.

 Thanks in advance for your feedback.

 

Image quality could have been better and color on monitors is not as vibrant as the actual decals.

Terry, I gotta go with.... both.

 

The way I look at it is... It depends on the tractor.

 

I think it's excellent that you are offering both colors for us to pick and choose as we see fit.

Beauty (or choice) is in the eye of the beholder!  I always subscribed to the idea that they were white originally, and are just varying degrees of off-white as they aged with time.

 

No matter what...  thanks Terry for all you do for us and our hobby!! :thumbs:

Like Jason said, We are just glad you are doing this to support our hobby.    :text-thankyoublue:

:twocents-02cents:       They probably left the factory bright white and aged a bit over the years.

Funny, there was just an interesting banter about this very subject on one of the Facebook groups.. 

Personally I've always liked the linen beige, and have never seen a WH with pure white decals in that time period. Even the occasional NOS one.

No preference per se. Depends on the tractor. They both look great!

 

Just glad you do what you do, so well and so professionally...! :bow-blue:

 

Thank You!

Thanks Zeek

 We are winterizing our redneck lake hose for the winter in 4 weeks so I will be home all winter working on my website.

Due to the majority voting for the off white, Linen beige I am making it the default color for All kits through 1977

but allowing customers to choose white as an option.

For the original Patina boy's the off white and for the Valspar IH Red boy's bright white. Both look Awesome IMO. Thanks for all your time and effort, much appreciated.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I too believe that the original color was an off white or linen white. Whatever you want to call it, and that is definitely my preference.
