If you have a color printer in your office then you should demand the best it can give you. Adding color to your machine can be an expensive cost, but it will often be a useful benefit if you use the machine correctly. Sadly, not everyone knows how to utilize their printer to the best of its ability. This will leave people with dull, boring colors. At Madison Copier we know that your business is important, so we want to help make sure you get the best colors possible.
When getting ready for a print job it is crucial to set your machine up to give you the best results. Don’t just assume that because you need a color print, that your printer will print in full color. Printers have settings that can be used to make sure you are getting everything you need out of your print jobs.
If you follow these steps then you should be well on your way to getting the best color prints you’ve ever had.
- Set your print resolution. Make sure that it is as high as it can go. Most printers have settings that go as high as 1800 x 600 dpi, or even 2400 x 1200. More dpi means better pictures.
- Set your print driver. Make sure you change from the text setting to the photo setting. This will prepare your printer for a bolder image.
- Set print drive to full color. This will open a new range of colors available.
- Use Adobe PostScript print drive. Your greens, blues, and reds will be changed into cyan, magenta, yellow, and black values. This will create a fully color spectrum.
- Check your digital format. Jpeg, PDF, and PNG will create better images than TIFF or Bitmap photo.
Always remember that just because today’s printers and copiers are powerful, does not mean that they can read your mind. Always make sure that you do your part to make the jobs come out as bright as they should. Prime your machine for success and you will get only the best.
