    Same CMYK code, different colors?

      Hi there,

       

      I'm at a new organization and having some trouble matching branding colors on new documents in InDesign CS4 and cannot figure out why for the life of me. I'm using the same exact CMYK code but the colors appear different in new documents vs. old documents. In old documents, it's showing up as a nice, medium blue color but in any new documents, it shows up as an extremely dark blue.

      I double checked to make sure the CMYK code (and both were process) was the same, which it is. I also checked the color profile and print settings to make sure they were also the same, which they were.

       

      I am at a complete loss for how I can correct this problem and my searches for a solution are coming up empty handed so I'm hoping someone here can help me out! Thanks in advance.
