Earlier this year, Pantone announced its Color of the Year 2022 as Very Peri, a blue with violet-red undertones. The shade, PANTONE 17-3938, was purposely selected as an embodiment of creativity, inspiration and intrigue, and to encourage the pursuit of dreams and stretching limits in both physical and digital spaces. Coming off a fast-paced and rapidly changing few years, Very Peri marks the first time that Pantone has created a new color for its Color of the Year program.

When promotional products clients and partners request to integrate Pantone’s Color of the Year 2022, or a similar color in the same family, it’s helpful to know what’s available, and where to get started.

Here are a few suggestions for useful and functional products colored in Very Peri and similar stunning shades.
