Will the colours printed be the same as I see on my screen?

10 June 2017

No. This is because the image you see on your screen is made up of RGB colours and your screen is in effect a big light bulb, so what you see is called additive colour. As paper cannot be illuminated, the ink colours do not have the benefit of enhancement by light, thus making them brighter (commonly referred to as subtractive colour). We do however calibrate our printers to ensure the best colour range possible. If in doubt we recommend you order a proof. If you do not order a proof you will be agreeing to accept any final prints unchecked.
