In today’s e-commerce environment, it is more important than ever that you and your business partners speak the same language when it comes to product data.

The GS1 US Color and Size Codes give suppliers, retailers and manufacturers a common language for product color and size identification. This ensures that product data can be quickly and appropriately identified and classified. Additionally, product data synchronization systems (including electronic catalogs) may require it. Standardized color and size codes ultimately lead to more efficient supply chain processes, increasing sales for both the supplier and the retailer.

The color and size codes are only available electronically, either from a GS1 US Solution Partner (OpenText, InterTrade, or SPS Commerce) or through a one-time download through the GS1 US store.

Color and Size codes are delivered in a Microsoft® Excel format. Please review the GS1 US Color and Size Codes Guideline before you make your purchase to ensure that you are able to use the codes once purchased. Please note that GS1 US does not provide technical support for using Microsoft Excel.
