It’ll probably never print like what’s in your screen no matter where you print it. The screens are RGB and the printers are usually cmyk. Plus if you print on colored paper it’ll change the color too. You’ll have to play around with the color until it prints the way you want it.  You can always do a test page with little squares of different colors to get what you like and not waste paper.

yeah, you need to figure out what your printer is printing in compared to your computer settings. It’ll be easier if both are RGB or CMYK. Otherwise yep, start playing around with color squares and keep track of what you try. I had to do the saaaaaame thing! Light pink is apparently a bitch of a color to get right!
