Just as the Pantone chart is the go-to colour guide for print and graphic artists, the Official YKK Colour Card is the definitive guide to accurate YKK tape colour selection for anyone using zippers.

Containing actual samples of every tape colour available from YKK, this is how you can match your project fabric to zipper tape colours.

  • 582 colours
  • Fully indexed - look up the YKK colour number and get column and row coordinates to the tape of that colour
  • Real physical tape samples
  • Heavy fold-out card

The book is comprised of every tape colour across all YKK product lines, and with 582 colours you will be able to find a shade to suit every project.

Please see the Custom Order page for information on ordering a colour that is not currently stocked here.

Also please note that YKK Canada does not stock every zipper metal finish in every colour shown in this book. The available colours for Canada can be as few as two dozen up to 150 depending on the zipper size and metal type. Odd as it sounds, just because a colour appears in the catalogue does not mean YKK Canada can provide it.

We ship orders every business day, so if yours is in before 2pm it has a good chance of going out the same day. Orders placed Friday afternoon through Saturday are shipped Sunday morning.

Canada Post has implemented a surcharge for fuel which has affected the shipping costs. We will check the current surcharge rate each month to ensure neither you nor we are being cheated.

At checkout you can choose between two shipping options if you are in Canada:

  • $13.99 flat-rate tracked parcel shipping
    • this will increase to $17.99 when exceeding 1.25kg 
  • $4.49 flat-rate oversize mail (no tracking or insurance) up to 300g (about 15 zippers), or
  • $6.99 flat rate oversized up to 500g (about 25 zippers)
    • Beyond 500g the package exceeds the limit for regular mail so must be shipped as a tracked parcel per above.

US residents:

  • $10.99 flat-rate tracked parcel shipping to the continental 48 states and Hawaii.

If you reside out of Canada or the USA, please contact to determine if we will ship to your country, and a shipping quote. 

Not a problem. Choose pickup or select the cheapest shipping and we will refund it once you let us know you'd rather pick up your order at our Pickering home. At that time we can discuss when your order will be ready and arrange the pickup date and time then. Our address and any pickup particulars will be confirmed then as well.

Covid-19 continues to impose challenges on Canada Post and the USPS with respect to maintaining timely deliveries and meeting published service standards. Please be patient if delays are affecting your area.

Etsy's high fees require us (and most other retailers) to charge more for both products and shipping/services when compared to a standalone site like  By shopping here we get to pass on the savings to you.
