4 Color Consistency Tips We Love

office technology

Nothing is more frustrating than printing documents that should be identical only to have color discrepancies. Here are four ways to improve color consistency.

1. Working with an On-Staff Color Specialist

Wherever you buy your office technology, they should have a color specialist employee. They will be your go-to person for perfecting the color quality of your printers and copiers. It’s a complicated process, and a color specialist will have experience with multiple businesses. Your organizations brand can not compromise color and neither should your office technology.

2. Use a Consistent Paper Type

Before you were worried about color consistency, you may have gone with the most economical choice when buying paper. It makes sense for business but when it comes to getting the right color your paper type matters. There is a variety of weight, sizes, and finishes that you need to consider. When purchasing from the same vendor, you should expect a consistent paper type.

3. Calibrate Your Copiers and Printers

Calibration is resetting your office technology to the factory settings. Supplies in the machine wear out over time, and environmental factors can affect your copiers and printers. The process isn’t complicated. There is a function that prints out cyan, magenta, yellow, and black ranging from 100% coverage to 5% coverage. Once you scan this paper, your device will understand what colors look like when printed and readjust themselves.

4. Standardize Your Office Technology

If you have office technology from different brands you may be noticing issues with the way color is produced between them. An easy way to improve color consistency in your office is to purchase all devices from the same brand. This also keeps consistent across software that a particular brand might use.

Achieving color consistency is not difficult and will improve the standard of your documents. To learn more about developing your office technology, call us today!
