Following are the mistakes related to the colours in the hardcover book printing:-
Working With The Old Computer
The most important thing which you need to expect is that a good colour cannot be reproduced on the monitor which is really old or is not professionally designed such to get the colours right. Many monitors are used for the business and gaming purposes and their creation is not like the professionals want. Cheap electronics and the display technologies are used by them for the purpose to get the big price sticker in the electronic stores. This is why you need to get a pricey and big screen most people anxious to look at.
Watch the CMYK colour values
When the ink is added more, then the CMYK colours gets darker. In the process of printing it is done by using the lithographic printing press. It is this machine which will lay down the coverage of 4 inks of yellow, cyan, black and magenta on the same paper so as to overlay the ink and also create a wide range of the colours. You need to keep in mind that all those colours which use large amount of yellow, cyan, black and magenta will become very oversaturated and those values which contain 280% coverage will result in the muddy colours.
Print Designing Without Turning On The Colour Proofing
When you will turn on the colour proofing, then only you will come to know how the colours will look when printed. When you will turn the colour proofing on your design application, then you will be able to view how the printer actually work when you are designing, so the you must avoid the costly disappointments and mistakes. The colour range of the digital devices is wider than that of the printers and this is the reason your colours will look better on the screen.
No Physical Print Proofs
Print evidence is merely your design’s digital printout that demonstrates how you anticipate all the colours to look as they come out of the printing press. Why are you doing this? You get to see colour issues soon and prevent going bad for two hours of debate about the printing work.
The best case scenario, you generate a print evidence with the setting of print-proofing on a laser colour printer (high end) and then send it with your digital documents to a professional printer. Many print shops will be able to provide you with a print proof, but a good inkjet copy might do if you don’t discover one. So, the notebook printing must be done very well as it creates really professional image of your company.
