    Colour Profile Problems

    Spinnaay

      Hi Everyone,

       

      I have been using illustrator for a while now for leaflet and banner printing. My illustrator skills are ok but I have always struggled with colour profiles. All print work I send out comes back slightly different depending on the printer and when I export to PDF the colour always shifts. I always use a colour profile and I include it when I export but still I get problems.

       

      I also have a problem when I embed one .ai file in another. Although both have the same CYMK colour they are not the same. Have a look at the attached picture.

      The logo in a seperate file has the same CYMK colour as the background in the master document.

       

      Could anyone point me to a good article about colour profiles or something like that.

       

      Thanks
