Calibration ?


To calibrate your printer you first calibrate your monitor with DisplayMate. Then you print the same DisplayMate test patterns and match them to the monitor by using the print driver controls.

Print colour mismatch with monitor colour


Sorry to inform you but it never will
You can come pretty close by trial and error by twicking the colour
with your printer software or if you have the money you can buy a very expensive gadget that you stick on your monitor and it will read the colours
and match it with your printer Close but not perfect either
Trial and error is the best solution

The printer is not printing the same colours that are on the screen


How different is the color from the printer with the screen? If, you can see yellow, but the printer prints a shade of green, then your ink (particularly the cyan color) may be leaking. Check your ink cartridges if there are leaks. If there are none, try printing blocks of colors and see if the colors match with the screen. If they don't match, maybe try using a different monitor and see if the problem persists.

When I print color with my Dell 3100cn the color does not match what I see on the screen. I somehow need to make what prints match the monitor. HELP!


In general the color on the screen is never exactly the same as the printer. You will have to play with the colors on the screen and test the output to see if it is what you really want.

Printed colours doesn't match with monitor colours


Here is a list of reasons why colours on electronic designs might differ from printed designs:
  • Monitors work in the RGB (Red,Green,Blue) colour space while printers use the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour space.
    Designs look fine on a monitor if they are designed in RGB to begin with. Converting them to CMYK might make them look odd on screen, but they will print correctly, to a certain measure. It is difficult to sign of an image file that is currently in CMYK mode while viewing with an RGB monitor.
  • Monitor settings differ.
    The designer was sitting in a darkish room when choosing the blue and his blue looks vibrant. The client was viewing the same design in a well-lit room, making the blue seem lighter. The designer uses an LCD display and the client uses a CRT monitor and the vibrancy differs. The contrast and saturation settings on each monitor might differ as well, rendering the blue with different values.
  • Each printer in the world prints colour slightly different.
    Sometimes it is really obvious and sometimes it is almost impossible to see the difference. Normal desktop printers are definitely not something to do colour proofing with. If you print the design out on your desktop printer then a slight shortage on any of the colours will make the colour come out wrong. There are a lot of factors that can influence even the most expensive printing equipment. These include altitude, humidity, the current heat of the printer, age of the printer, quality of ink, the paper that is being used, special coatings on the paper etc. Even viewing the same printed material in different lighting conditions may make the colour seem different.
Tips on getting the most accurate colour
Go to your nearest printer company and ask to see their Pantone colour matching system. Each colour in the Pantone chart has a matching number. Most design applications have the same Pantone charts built in so that colour matching is easy. Read up on Pantone at Wikipedia. Make sure that the file is converted to CMYK (If not designed in it originally) before sending it to print. Some printer companies might ask for colour separation prints which the leading design packages can produce. It is also important for the designer to choose the correct colour management profile in the design package.

Print and screen color matching is HORRIBLY difficult. It could be a case of old ink, humid air, poor calibration, or different qualities of paper (when comparing two prints).

For best, most consistent products, go to a professional photo finisher/print shop.

Too much red every tine I print photographs?


By too much red I presume you mean that the print is much redder than the image on the screen.
It's a perennial problem, matching what you see on the screen to what comes out of the printer.
The first thing you need to do is make sure that your monitor is showing accurate colours in the first place. Once that is done you need to experiment with printer profiles to get as close a match on the printed paper. However. It's not that simple, as different paper types, different paper manufacturers, different ink types and different printer models all add their own spanner in to the works.
Sometimes you can be lucky and your monitor may be reasonably accurate out of the box, and similarly you may have picked the right paper ink combination for your printer - it does happen, but there's a small industry out there based on getting those matches right - in the print world it's vital that what you see is what you get.
There isn't room here to tell you how to do it, so I suggest that you google more specific websites for proper instructions.

Screen colour not matching the printed pages


Unfortunately that's the age old problem of matching colors between computers and printers. Your printer is probably not the problem, that's why he couldn't fix it. Even though your monitor is set to default values it doesn't mean that your colors are correct as colors can vary from monitor to monitor and the color temperature is probably too high causing the colors to look lighter than the printout. The picture on the monitor may look good to you, but it's not set right for matching printer colors. Monitors use RGB (Red, Green & Blue colors) colors and printers use CYMK (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta & Black) colors and you have to make them get the results you want. You will have to do some tweaking of your monitor's settings to get it to match the printer output. Below are some links that will help explain things better and maybe help you adjust your monitor.
