During the recently held Greenbuild exposition in Chicago, Crossville unveiled its new Sustainable Samples kit, which contains paper "tile" samples created using a high resolution scanner to capture a near-exact image of each tile.

“The box contains every tile, every color in our porcelain tile collection – that's more than 230 colors – in a compact, lightweight kit that is about 10 inches x 4 inches. It is intended to help designers make preliminary color and product selections, allowing them to have an entire product line in their libraries in a minimum of space,” the company notes.

Crossville adds, “The back of the tile has a QR code that designers can scan with any smart phone to retrieve more information about the product. When they have made their selections, that same smart phone app will enable them to automatically order a real product sample, just by clicking on one button.”
