# Colors

This guide describes the Theme settings > Colors menu options to set how colors are displayed throughout your store.

In the following video, to set buttons to use the color scheme’s accent color, the settings in Theme settings > Colors > Buttons are changed from Text to Accent. In the video, the accent color is applied to solid buttons and outline buttons. Solid buttons have a solid color background, outline buttons have a solid color outline with a transparent background.

For general guidance with adjusting a theme setting, refer to Settings.

# Color schemes

With Label, you can create 3 different sets of colors called color schemes.

Color schemes provide a quick and easy way to use colors consistently across your store. Instead of colorizing store elements individually, whenever you apply colors to blocks, sections and page templates, simply reuse the colors from your color schemes.

The following table describes Label’s color schemes.

Color scheme name Description
Primary This is your store’s default color scheme.
Secondary A second color scheme option for your store.
Tertiary An optional third color scheme for your store.
