Dear Sherwin Williams

I'm a big fan of your Cashmere paint line. This is the third house I've used it in and have nothing but good things to say about the coverage, finish, and durability.

I've never considered you for wallpaper however, because most of the books you have in-store are not so great. A bud of mine recently found that you have some good grasscloth, so tonight I got online and looked around.

Being able to search by color was helpful, and I found something I think I love. But then I couldn't crib the picture. People do a lot of sourcing online. I have folders on my laptop devoted to furniture and fixtures and all sorts of things I want to remember for future use. Except for your wallpaper, because I couldn't.

Yes, I'll order a sample for five bucks, but it would have been nice if I could have grabbed the picture for my file.

Thanks,
Dave

Sounds fair enough.

Or even an "email to a friend" button would have been helpful.

In this day and age, there is no excuse for not being on top of all things internet and social media.

David, I share your frustration but there's an easy workaround; take a screen capture then just use your image editor to crop it down to the sample you want to save. Voila.

Thank you Chris! Now if I can figure out the command...

Just hit the "prnt scrn" button, which copies the screen to your clipboard. Paste in your image editor, then save as a file.

That's how it works on my machine, at least.

If you have a mac, hit command + shift + 4. A small symbol will appear on your screen and you can manipulate it with your mouse to make it as big or as small as you like. You also position it with your mouse.

Command shift 3 will take a pic of the whole screen.
