Brandee gives you an elegant way to add your brand colors for use in a custom field.

About Brandee

Add your company or client brand colors with a fun and easy-to-use interface for both you and your clients. Brandee is also a good solution for when you don’t want to give your clients access to a color picker.

What is Brandee is great for?

  • Setting up a handful of easily accessible colors for entries on your site
  • Individual pages or sections of your site that need their own brand colors
  • Making sure your clients don’t choose incorrect colors using a color picker
  • Adding new colors as a client’s brand expands and having them instantly available in new and existing Brandee fields

What can Brandee’s custom field output?
Once you add your colors using Brandee’s simple interface, they will be available to select in Brandee’s custom dropdown field. The custom field can output the following for the selected color:

  • The color name
  • The color ID
  • The color’s HEX value
  • The color’s RGB value
  • A contrast color is also available (usually used to make text legible when used on top of the color)


The following tags are available for Brandee’s custom field type:

Color Name
Outputs the name you used for the color.




Color ID
Outputs a single ID


HEX Value
outputs the 6-character hex value (i.e. 53281a)


RGB Value
Outputs the 3 comma-separated RGB values (i.e. 123,248,187)


Contrast Color
A convenient way to automatically output a contrasting color for the current Brandee color. (i.e. ffffff or 000000)
