Okay so I am trying to make a business card, and I primarily work in Illustrator CS2 or PageMaker 6.5 (unfortunately). So here’s my problem,
I have my business card setup and it is a green card with a yellow stripe in the middle. Theres a small logo on the card as well.
When i change the color of the green/yellow stripes I do it right in PageMaker. I have many swatch libraries available to me (Pantone etc). Whenever I use these colors though they produce the desired appearance on the screen.
When i change the color of the logo on there I have to open it with an image editing program such as paint draw etc… When I change the color of the logo to match the stripes it will blend in fine on the monitor. When I print it my greens appear olive/barf color and the logo’s green appears somewhat different.
So upon doing some research, as my graphic design images skill are little to nil, they sent me to Chromix. I have tried recalibrating my monitor and printer, I do not believe there is a problem there.
So does anyone know what software I can use, or if there is a swatch library I can import that will create similar colors when I print, to what I see on the monitor. If there is no freeware I would consider buying software, but I just need something that will work and won’t produce this problem again.
My monitor is a SAMSUNG SyncMaster 710N,
My Printer is a Canon ImageRunner c4080i…
My Printer drivers are the iR C4080 PCL5c AND UFRII.
If anyone has a solution or any advice I would truly appreciate it.
Let me know what you guys think!
