Will my boxes match the color on my screen?

Colors can sometimes appear different on your computer screen than they will when printed. This is because each device reimpriments colors in its own way, which may lead to unpredictable results if you’re trying reproduce an ink or color for commercial use!

Why is it so difficult to achieve color consistency between the monitor and the final print? And why do they look different on different monitors? Why do color test runs almost never exactly match the final results? We have already discussed some of the most important reasons.

Why is it so difficult to achieve color consistency between the monitor and the final print? And why do they look different on different monitors? Why do color test runs almost never exactly match the final results? We have already discussed some of the most important reasons.

First of all, there is a basic difference between printing presses and monitors. The printing press uses the CMYK system with inks, while the monitors uses the RGB system with light sources. You can’t achieve the same range of colors with inks that you can with light sources, and for this reason you will never achieve a really good color match between the two systems.

Second, there can be a large difference in the quality of color printed by two devices that use CMYK as their printing system. An example is the difference between a laser printer and an inkjet printer. Both use CMYK, but the laser printer uses ink powder that is fused onto the paper, and the inkjet printer uses liquid ink that is sprayed on. In the same way, there can be a large difference between printing presses, especially if they use different printing techniques with different kinds of ink. There are also different kinds of paper with widely varying effects on color reproduction.

Last of all, there are differences between two pieces of the same kind of equipment, such as between two monitors or two laser printers. One of the reasons for this is that the RGB light sources of the screens can differ from each other. All this makes it enormously difficult to achieve consistency in colors. RGB and CMYK are what is known as device-dependent color models because the colors will look different depending on the device used.

To ensure the precise color you want, we recommend requesting a production-grade sample for confirmation before moving forward with bulk order.
