Differences in Colours: Monitor vs. T-Shirt

Colors 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 color scheme from RGB to CMYK and make color corrections if necessary. This may lead to slight color variations.
  • Every screen displays colors differently. A combination of brightness, contrast and saturation can change color effects significantly.
  • The color of the fabrics has an effect on the print result. The example below illustrates how different colors come out on white, black and different-colored fabrics.
