2018/10/07 Why is it that your printer does not print the colors as you see them on your monitor?

You will never get a perfect match because the image on the screen and the image kicked out of your printer are two different beasts. Your screen's pixels are emitted light but printer simply can't print light. It uses dyes and pigments to replicate the colors.

Thus RGB colors output as CMYK colors are pulled to their nearest CMYK equivalent which is always darker. So why does printer output not match your screen? Simple.  Printer can't print light. 

Another crucial factor to lessen the color difference is to convert your photos and graphics to CMYK color before artwork submitted.
