3 WAYS TO ACHIEVE IN-HOUSE COLOR PRINTING CONSISTENCY
If you rely on in-house color printing, you know the importance of consistency. If your office imaging equipment isn’t delivering consistent color results for your customer-facing materials, there are steps you can take to correct the issue. In many cases, you won’t need to purchase any new equipment or software. Here’s where to begin:
FIND OUT WHERE YOU STAND
Inconsistent color quality can often be corrected with a simple calibration process. There may be nothing wrong with your office imaging equipment; everything from the moisture levels of the room to the ambient temperature can affect your color printing results.
To find out where you stand, locate the calibration function on your color printer or multifunction system. Print a CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and key/black) spectrum for your device. Scanning the swatch sheet will give your equipment a starting place to reset color values back to factory specifications. The process is relatively simple to complete and could bring new consistency to your color documents.
STANDARDIZE YOUR PAPER SOURCE
Paperweight and finishes can affect color consistency. Choose a paper source and manufacturer that delivers the most consistent results and then stick with them throughout the life of your office equipment. Even if the purchase price is a little higher than you’d like to pay, you’ll save money by eliminating do-overs due to color inconsistencies.
STANDARDIZE YOUR OFFICE EQUIPMENT
It can be challenging to get color consistency when working with a variety of office equipment manufacturers. Ask for a demonstration from your office equipment provider to learn about new color printing technologies and how to get better results from your current fleet.
