Is there any way to create custom label colors?

The default label colors are pretty terrible / limited. Is there any way to add more? Even in the business version?

There's not a way to create custom label colors, however if you want a different view of the current colors on there, enable Color Blind Friendly mode and it'll appear differently.


Agree with @skeddles here.


Example use case:

Setting up a "Publishing" Trello board where each channel has their own label. For example social media with Instagram and Facebook / web page, blog and press / events and on location activities – just to give a few examples of possible labels here.

Colors assigned for each channel would then be desired to create a visual colorized association with each – utilizing the brand colors via for example


Current set of pre-set colors are too limited when you want to go the extra mile and configure the Trello board 100% solid according to the example use case above.

Also, optionally adding/setting custom colors for labels is sort of expected in 2018 – especially from a forward leaning product as Trello.

I am really hoping and looking forward to a future development of this part of Trello label colors ahead. With this said – amazing work with Trello so far you guys and keep up the good work going forward as well!

Best regards, Tobias

PS. I love Trello.
