Why can't the printed colours be 100% the same as seen on my monitor?
The colour you see on the screen is RGB (Red, Green and Blue) which is the colour space for digital images. In contrast, CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key/black) is what is produced in the digital printing process. The printing machine creates images by combining CMYK colours.
(RBG colours on the screen vs CMYK colours printed)
Why can't the colours be printed 100% the same for every print run?
- The colour and composition of paper affects the printed colour
- Papers have different chemical compositions, additives, textures, finishes, etc that all react differently with inks and toners of digital and conventional presses.

What’s the differences between coated and uncoated papers?
Coated paper has a coating on them to improve brightness and smoothness. Whereas uncoated paper doesn’t have a coating to fill in between the fibres, so has a natural and rough texture. Coated paper doesn’t have to be considered glossy, it can be coated with glossy or matte finishes, whereas uncoated only has a matte finish.
Impact on the printing
The coated paper is “sealed”, it lets the ink settle on the surface, so the printings look deeper and more vibrant. Uncoated paper is more porous, so it absorbs more inks and makes the printing dull and not as prominent.
What’s the differences between a glossy and matte finish?
A glossy finish will come with a smooth and shiny appearance. It is also very colour rich and vibrant. However, because of this, it will be reflective. Opt for a glossy finish if you want a shiny look.
Whereas a matte finish will offer a more neutral and natural look. It will give your packaging an overall softer and luxurious look. It won’t be reflective as the glossy finish.
