Guidelines For Online Ordering


You'll see that we have divided our 377 colours into 17 sections below.   1 section = 1 column = 23 shades. 

It's quick and easy to download a single section that contains the colours and shades you're looking for, and click on the colour to order: 

1st step:  Please select colour (s), and enter the Quantity
2nd step: Click on 'Add to Cart' at the end of each section.

Need to find  colour (s) quickly? If you already know the number (s), use the box ABOVE:

1st step:  Enter the colour number (eg, 1001).  You can only enter one number at a time.
2nd step: Enter the 'Quantity'.
3rd step: Click on 'Add to Cart'.


Downloading the 17 colour sections may take a little longer for Dialup Connection clients.
We recommend that Dialup Connection clients go straight to our Colour Card page, as that will download quickly. Here's how to do it - it's really easy :

  • Click on Colour Card ( if you don't own a colour chart book)
  • Make a list of colour numbers you need
  • Enter the colour number (eg, 1001)  in the box ABOVE.
  • Enter the Quantity
  • Click on Add to Cart.
  • Repeat the process.  (NB:  You can only enter one number at a time.)


We strongly recommend that you have your own Marathon Colour Chart Book, and that you always check your colour choices on our online Colour Card page or against your Marathon Colour Card.
