We are ordering a design template from Etsy and then printing the invites out ourselves on card stock. We picked a design that we love and printed it on regular paper on a regular office printer with a color cartridge. The colors came out a lot different. On the screen, the colors are midnight blue and a deep, dark red. On paper it’s a more muted blue and a much lighter red. When I hold the paper up to the screen I can really tell how drastically different they are. I like the screen version SO MUCH better than the printed one. FI says that every printer will print the same way. Is that true? The designer doesnt’ offer any other colors that are darker (at least that are part of our color palette) so there’s not really a way around this issue. I’m annoyed becaue I like the design but the colors are off. I didn’t pick “red, white and blue” like 4th of July style as my colors. I picked midnight and deep, dark red. That’s not what’s printing. Solutions? Can I find a better printer?
