Differences in Colours: Monitor vs. T-Shirt

Colours may look different on the printed item than they appear on your monitor. This may be due to different reasons:

  • To print pixel designs, we need to render the colour scheme from RGB to CMYK and make colour corrections if necessary. This may lead to slight colour variations.
  • Every screen displays colours differently. A combination of brightness, contrast and saturation can change colour effects significantly.
  • The colour of the fabrics has an effect on the print result. The example below illustrates how different colours come out on white, black and different-coloured fabrics.
