Won't help for this job, but next time keep the paint can lid, with the sticker on it that shows what the base and the tint colors were.

What I've done in the past is to cut off just the surface layer of sheet rock from behind a door that's usually open (so you can't see the removed spot). Just cut it right above the baseboard and only about 1" by 2" so they can put it into the paint machine matching system window. The spot you remove it from can be easily spackled over and it won't even be noticeable.

for a computer color match you only need a piece the size of a quarter. Shave it out with a razor scraper and smooth over with mud. OR pull it from a spot that doesn't show.
