Why do the printed colors look different from the colors on my screen?

Why do the printed colors look different from the colors on my screen?

In short, printers and monitors produce colors in different ways.

Monitors use the RGB (red, green, blue) color model, which usually supports a wider spectrum of colors.

Printers use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color model, which can reproduce most-but not all-of the colors in the RGB color model.

Depending on the equipment used, CMYK generally matches 85-90% of the colors in the RGB model.

When a color is selected from the RGB model that is out of the range of the CMYK model, the application chooses what it thinks is the closest color that will match.

Programs like Adobe Photoshop will allow you to choose which color will be replaced. Others may not.

What is the Pantone Matching System?

What is the Pantone Matching System?

The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a color reproduction standard in which colors all across the spectrum are each identified by a unique, independent number.

The use of PMS allows us to precisely match colors and maintain color consistency throughout the printing process.

What is a "proof"?

What is a "proof"?

A proof is a way of ensuring that we have set your type accurately and that everything is positioned according to your requirements.

Typically, we will produce a proof which will be sent to you online or printed on paper which can be viewed at our facility or delivered to you in person.

On multiple color jobs, we can produce a color proof on our color output device to show how the different colors will appear.

PDF (Portable Document Format) is the most common and preferred file format for submitting digital documents.

With the installation of a PDF print driver on your computer, virtually any program can generate a PDF file suitable for printing.

Both commercial and free PDF print drivers are available online for download from different sources.
