Blaming it on the inks

Written by Florie Lyn Masarate

When prints do not turn out fine,repparttar first things that people blame them into arerepparttar 151007 inks that they use. They are underrepparttar 151008 impression that inks are one ofrepparttar 151009 most common factors that affectrepparttar 151010 output of printing materials. This is most especially seen inrepparttar 151011 color printings and graphic designs. Not gettingrepparttar 151012 right kind of colors into printed materials would be charged on inks.

It is a known fact that inks sometimes encounter problems especially duringrepparttar 151013 course of printing. What people are not aware of, however, is that there are also considerations and things to know about inks before and when using them. People are just prone to make justifications to explain not knowing these factors. There are things that they want to believe and things that they do not know.

People believed that inks that are straight fromrepparttar 151014 container are ready to use. So just put them into their place inrepparttar 151015 printer and they will getrepparttar 151016 job done. What they do not know is that brand new inks needed stirring. Duringrepparttar 151017 time thatrepparttar 151018 inks are packed and shipped out, they may have stilled in a certain place inrepparttar 151019 container and may solidify. Stirring them would have preventedrepparttar 151020 trouble and expense of replacing them without having used them inrepparttar 151021 first place.

Some think that they already knowrepparttar 151022 inks they are using; therefore they should not read more about technical data and information about it. What they do not know is that some inks needed special processes and respected environments to producerepparttar 151023 right prints. it is important that people should have technical knowledge aboutrepparttar 151024 equipments that they are using to avoid and be able to do something when encountering problems inrepparttar 151025 course of printing.

The accuracy of colors

Written by Florie Lyn Masarate

Design experts would know that colors may appear differently from one screen torepparttar next. So it would not be shocking for those who knew when they see their prints turning out notrepparttar 151006 same asrepparttar 151007 one they have been seeing so perfectly on screen. it is said that what you see onrepparttar 151008 monitor is being converted to a different “color space”. That is whyrepparttar 151009 colors are notrepparttar 151010 same when it is already in print because it has undergone color spaces while printing. One ofrepparttar 151011 technical explanations for these is thatrepparttar 151012 monitor sees images withrepparttar 151013 use of RGB (that’s Red, Green and Blue) colors, while most printing companies use CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) andrepparttar 151014 Pantone Matching system. There goes your culprit. Try comparingrepparttar 151015 printed result fromrepparttar 151016 one on screen. See any relation? Not even distant relatives.

The colors you wish to see on print changes inrepparttar 151017 process of printing due torepparttar 151018 colors that are dominant onrepparttar 151019 screen that varies from that onrepparttar 151020 printers. Gettingrepparttar 151021 result you wanted would mean a lot of color testing and even some knowledge on colors.

The printing industry is continuously spending money, and time, in trying to make a calibrated monitor. The WYSIWP (what-you-see-is-what-you-print), as they say. This is solved by adjustingrepparttar 151022 monitor to be able to reproduce what they think would come inrepparttar 151023 print result and on paper. One variable that is also needed isrepparttar 151024 inks that will be used. It would take a lot of combinations to be able to getrepparttar 151025 right colors on paper to matchrepparttar 151026 screen colors. And of course,repparttar 151027 ink quality plays a major role, as not all are ofrepparttar 151028 same texture and do not produce exactlyrepparttar 151029 same colors.
