Download and print your own watercolor swatch card sheets! Please read the product description carefully before purchasing this item.


These swatch cards are designed to print on letter-sized (8.5x11 inch) paper. They are slightly different in dimensions from the swatch sheets used for the Watercolor Swatch Books and do not include the black line in one of the swatch squares to test for paint transparency. This line has been removed for home printing on inkjet printers as most inkjet printers do not use waterproof ink. Please read the notes on printing below for more information. The line can easily be added to your swatch card by drawing a line with a black, WATERPROOF pen.




* Unless your printer has a rear feeder tray for thicker specialty paper (such as watercolor paper), please do not print these at home. Putting watercolor paper through a bottom feed tray WILL jam and/or damage your printer.


* Most home/inkjet printers do NOT use waterproof ink. A list of waterproof, pigment ink printers can be found here. Laser printers produce waterproof prints. If printing on an inkjet printer that uses non-waterproof, dye-based ink, be careful to avoid the lines of the boxes to prevent smearing the ink.


* Researching your printer's capabilities before purchasing this digital file is highly recommended.
