Will you match a sample I print out on my own printer, or a previously printed sample?

At RealEstatePrintShop.ca part of the way we offer fast turnaround and low pricing is by printing to a “pleasing colour” standard, using standard ink densities. Therefore, there is no guarantee that your finished piece will match your printed sample. This is due in part to the widely varying results from different output devices including inkjet and laser printers. Even from one commercial printing firm to another, there can be differences in results. In particular, inkjet and laser prints are known to look substantially different than true offset lithography.

If you require precise color match, please contact us to arrange for a digital color proof.

Once you approve the additional fees (starting at $40), we will produce and send you a hard proof via overnight delivery. When you approve and return the proof, we will match the colour of the proof you approved.
Bottom line: the final product we produce for you is unlikely to match the output from your inkjet printer — it will look more professional!
