Speaking as someone who has access to original sample cards/charts that have always been kept in a controlled dark environment, you might want to point out that the monitor and printer (should you wish to print them off) will have a massive impact on the colour.
Besides, pretty much all the BS381c colours are available here: http://www.e-paint.co.uk/
In almost all cases (in other words all the colours I have had to check) there has been no change between then and now.

Yes, Thanks, forgot to say that about printing, but should be quite close on modern LCD screens.

Forgot to add, the BS 381C colour chart is widely available, but this version includes the 70 or so other BS colours not usually found in the 381 chart.

Now for me dinner!

Now somebody's going to tell me I put the pics in the wrong place! LOL!
