Prints different

Recommended Posts

I regularly calibrate using my Spyder and have test prints to compare after calibration. With my most recent print order, the colors are different with the same photo. Same photo, same order, different sizes (one 4x6 and one 8x10. The 4x6 print matches my screen but the 8x10 has more red in it. Is there something on my end that caused this to happen or is this possibly a lab error?

Hi Sarah, I've moved this post into AD, since it's not a class question per se.

This is very interesting.  It's actually rather common, but usually the difference in print size is bigger than this.  Usually 4x6s and 8x10s would be printed on the same machine at the lab.  However, it seems like that might not be the case?  If they were printed on different machines, and one of the machines was running a bit dodgy that day, it would be the most common explanation for this.

Have you asked the lab about it?
