The accuracy of colorsWritten by Florie Lyn Masarate
Design experts would know that colors may appear differently from one screen to next. So it would not be shocking for those who knew when they see their prints turning out not same as one they have been seeing so perfectly on screen. it is said that what you see on monitor is being converted to a different “color space”. That is why colors are not same when it is already in print because it has undergone color spaces while printing. One of technical explanations for these is that monitor sees images with use of RGB (that’s Red, Green and Blue) colors, while most printing companies use CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) and Pantone Matching system. There goes your culprit. Try comparing printed result from one on screen. See any relation? Not even distant relatives.
The colors you wish to see on print changes in process of printing due to colors that are dominant on screen that varies from that on printers. Getting 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 adjusting monitor to be able to reproduce what they think would come in print result and on paper. One variable that is also needed is inks that will be used. It would take a lot of combinations to be able to get right colors on paper to match screen colors. And of course, ink quality plays a major role, as not all are of same texture and do not produce exactly same colors.
