What is the easiest way to match paint?

I need to match paint I no longer have a can of, so I do not know the brand or color.  Is there a way to match this?

alania,

 

If you can bring in about a 1 inch square sample of the wall color to Home Depot, the paint department can have the computer generate a new formula to reproduce your color and sheen. If you are lucky. you might have a sample on something such as a light or switch plate. If not, you will want to cut a sample or the drywall from an inconspicuous location, such as in back of the sofa. You will score through the outer paper of the drywall and then undercut it to lift of a sample.

 

Hope this has helped.
