Behr dials up the offering for digital do-it-yourselfers
Building on the phenomenal success of BEHR Premium Plus Ultra® paint and primer in one and to further enhance the updated Web site launched last spring, Behr Paints is excited to announce the addition of the new Premium Plus Ultra Virtual Color Center along with a new and improved BEHR Color Samples program. 
For the first time on, customers can preview designer colors exclusive to Premium Plus Ultra line. Modeled after the in-store color center, the new online Premium Plus Ultra Color Center provides a way for customers to interact with Ultra color swatches, magazines and mood cards from the convenience of their own home. In addition, customers can now apply Premium Plus Ultra colors when visualizing and coordinating with Behr’s popular ColorSmart By BEHR™ and Paint Your Place™ applications. 
“Since many consumers start their painting projects by doing research at home via the internet, we wanted to make it easier to view colors online” said Scott Richards, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Behr Process Corporation.  “The addition of these online tools further empowers our customers to coordinate color and paint with confidence.”
