Carolina Panthers' Blues! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have a good amount of Panthers gear, and I'm just a little annoyed that it seems like the team has sanctioned more than one shade of blue. I mean, I realize that not all materials or dye batches are identical, but, come on...The Panthers need to make up their minds (and I say this as I just ordered a glacier blue cap...:).

What is our official shade of blue? I know it's not the newest Glacier Blue that I've seen on some items lately. I looked it up years ago, because some people were telling me turquoise, and it seems like New Era is the biggest offender with these teal---Jags-colored Panthers hats, but I got it down to Electric Blue (a.k.a. Panthers Blue). So I'm like, "Electric Blue, it is!" Now, I've seen some say our official color is Process Blue. What in the world? Nike, New Era, etc. and all the officially licensed NFL gear providers need to get it together!

Mr. David Tepper, if you happen to see this, let's get everyone singing the blues on one accord!

Panthers blue has always been Process Blue. That's the name of the ink from Pantone. "Electric Blue" is just what the team calls it.

There's different color codes for embroidery, shirts, plastic, etc. There's a number of reasons why you're seeing variations, probably companies just ignoring those codes and/or using cheaper materials that are close in color but not exact.

I dont know why but for some reason most companies cannot seem to get the color right.

Since I am color blind, I have no problem with this.

Yes, this is an issue that you can see throughout the stadium as well, so it's not just a manufacturing issue.  I've seen different blues printed from the Official Team handouts, to different color shirts and hats in the official team store.  I have a favorite shade of blue that I see them use, but you're right it'd be better to have one official color.

I remember the Bobcats changing their blue as they said it was tough to reproduce consistently.

Also as long as you aren't wearing those horrible Carolina Blue fake jerseys, it'll be fine haha

Yeah its annoying. The real color is Process Blue C yet the official jerseys use more of a teal/turquoise blue. You literally walk into the stadium and all of the signage is process blue yet their uni's don't even match.

Consistency is not a Panther's trait. It sadly fits.

The blue jerseys alternate jerseys seem to be a different shade of blue each year. I also think the color rush blue jerseys with blue pants are a different shade then the normal blue alternate. incredibly inconsistent.
