Why Are My Design’s Colors Different When Printed?
In this week’s question time video I talk about designing for print and how your colour selections may impact how your design is reproduced. I also share some tips on how to check the ink coverage in your design before sending it off to print.
This week’s questions
I designed a booklet for a musician (I don’t have a lot of experience in print design) and the colors were totally different once the booklet was printed. So I wanted to ask you if you can give me some advice to make the screen colors match the print colors.
I’ve been doing some poster designs for various club nights around Liverpool. However, the three that I’ve done over the past 2 weeks have looked fine on my Mac but when they have gone to print they’ve lacked quality. I managed to sort these posters out but I don’t want this happening again due to it looking bad on me. Any tips or thoughts?
