How to make sure your printed colours appear as you expect.

To closely match the colours of your artwork/design (as seen on your computer) with the final printed product, an understanding of colour elements can help you achieve the best result.

Depending on the type of monitor you use and the colours involved, there could be a big difference between how the colour looks on the monitor (RGB MODE) and how the printed colour (CMYK MODE) looks. The type of paper can also affect the final result.

For a close colour match, you can supply Stationery Online with a hard copy sample of your print job, allowing us to find the closest matching CMYK colour. If we are unable to find a matching CMYK colour code, we would recommend using another printing set of colours called Pantone (Spot) colours. Pantone colour printing usually costs a little more but the colour match is better.

Brightness of colours can also vary between monitors (RGB) and printed product (CYMK). Colours may appear bright on a computer monitor and be dull in print. This is because of differences in the ways light is absorbed or exposed in each.
