We need a lot more label colors.  Do you have any better time line on when more colors will be available?  We don't really like that idea of making the card a different color like the video presentation showed.

Please let me know if someone is working on having more colors

Hi! Alex from Trello Support here. I’m really excited to announce that, as of today, we have released 20 new label colours to Trello. We appreciate your feedback and your patience while we worked on this new feature. You can read more on our blog post over at

That's great Alex...except they are all pastels. Honestly that's pretty useless I need to see differences in the labels instantly. So why is there no option for BOLD colours? What is Atlassian's explanation for that?

You've slowed down my work flow considerably, and judging from the other comments other users aren't stoked about these "Improvements"

In addition to this changing colors, I cannot see the label's name inside the cards anymore. Even they have names, these names does not appear inside the labels when I set them to a card. This change made my work more confusing. Like @Johnny Sutherland said this is a step backwards as well :(

It's still there - just click on the coloured label. Clicking on it toggles the text on and off.

Hey @monstertac1 - watch this space! We'll have an announcement soon that will hopefully help you here. 

What happened to the BOLD colors of the labels?? They are now appearing soft and pastel which makes them far less easily recognizable. In the world of UX / UI, this is a HUGE step backwards. The pastel colors are what I've alway disliked about Tasks / Office 365 and now here they are in Trello. Sad day.

Agreed! I can barely differentiate these Pastel labels! And I need to be able to change them to certain orders quickly and correctly.

Can you at least give us the option to have Bold colours? The colourblind mode doesn't cut it!

This just happened to us as well.  No warning, just a sudden, sickening change to our familiar color scheme.  If you can change colors like that at will, why not just add them as additional options?  The entire point of color coding is that the colors are EASY to differentiate.  This is supposed to be a productivity tool, not an art space.

I am in total agreement, I came to work today and saw the change. Our whole team has been affected as we rely heavily on the labels and the bold colors for faster navigating. This has slowed us down considerably, and I am hoping there is an option to revert to old label colors. So disappointed that such a big change happened without warning that affects the way we navigate through our day. We love Trello, it has been a lifesaver for our business, but when you are relaying on multiple labels on the front of a card to help you read production progress at a glance, this type of change is a big one. I am really hoping to see bolder label options back as an option.

The recent update of more colors is nice. The update of having bolder colors is welcome. No doubt about it though, the previous BOLD colors were much better for UX  because it registered far faster and simpler in our over-taxed brains. The solution is so simple from a coding standing point, quite hard to understand why it isn't being implemented / reimplemented. Bring back the old BOLD.
