The paint testers are just one of many tools Glidden paint offers to help boost color confidence and make it easy to get going on a painting project.  Other tools include:

Glidden paint has also made significant improvements to its formula that equals or outperforms some of the most expensive interior paint brands on the market, including a $50 per gallon paint. And the best part is that Glidden paint has kept its price steady, still ranging from $16 - $24 per gallon. The new formula, independently tested, achieved an excellent rating on key quality markers such as washability, scrub resistance, water spotting and hide (coverage), to name a few.
