Adjusting the Color of a Design for the Final Product

You may have to calibrate your monitor for accuracy.

Managing your screen colors by calibrating your monitor and keeping your equipment clean is important in the production of any full-color products. What you see on-screen is not what will print. The best way to find how to adjust your computer monitor is to run a few tests with various images. If many images look to have more red within the image on-screen than when in the final production phase, make some changes. Adjust your monitor or make a note to adjust your designs for the difference between computer monitor and final product.
