Visualization is next to getting the right colors

In getting the perfect tone and color for your print job, dispose of technicalities. It can help a big deal if you just try to visualize what you wanted to achieve.

Natural vision sees colors as tones. People see from the lightest to the darkest shade. By printing a deep red with dots of assorted sizes, you can achieve all of these colors with only one color ink.

It is the same thing with the colors being combined and printed. If you are not precise in printing the right size dot, the color will be wrong.

If you mess up from the beginning, then it can only get worse from there. The process is sequential. Each progressive step is based on the properly prepared previous step.

Pleasing color is the best place to start. This means that the color only needs to look believable but it does not have to match.

A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if the image looks hard to print. If it does then it really is. You are better off with another set of colors that looks right and easy to do from the start.
