Default Bold Bright Brads

I just received and opened my BB brads, and the red looks more like a Ruby Red and not Real Red.

Has anyone else had this problem, or is it just me, or are my eyes deceiving me?

How does it look on the Real Red paper? I'm notoriously bad at telling whether colors will match until they are actually together. Reds can be very tricky, I think.

Well, I talked to my demo, and she is going to call SU tomorrow and have them send out a new set and we will see if they just messed up or the red really isnt red. I put it up to the Really Rust paper, and I think it looks more like Really rust rather than Real Red.

I will keep you updated

Well, my demo ordered another set of BB Brads, and the red is the same I still think it looks like Ruby red and not Real red. She agrees with me and is going to contact SU and see if anyone else has complained and maybe they will redo the color so it looks more Real red.

I even took a scrap or both colors of card stock and put the eyelet through them, and I think it matchs the Ruby red cardstock - jmo

I was going to buy all the sets of new brads that match the SU colors, but now I am not sure after this. I am wondering how close the other brad colors are to the cardtock.

Could those of you whom have bought these brads respond regarding which colors match and which don't?

Thanks...LM
