The color of my prints look off from what I saw on my monitor, what do I do to fix this?

We highly recommend using a monitor calibration kit to get the best output for your prints. We recommend devices from X-Rite or Datacolor. You can find these in most computer stores or online at Amazon or B&H Photo by searching "monitor calibration devices."

If you do not have access to a kit, Windows and macOS has built-in calibration software to help. The manual adjustments do not guarantee  that the display is color accurate, but it can be used as a good starting point.

  • Go to Start -> PC Settings -> System -> Display.
  • Scroll down to "Advance Display Settings" and click on it.
  • Click on "Display Adapter Properties"
  • Select the "Color Management" tab and click on the "Color Management..." button.
  • Go to the "Advance" tab and click on the "Calibrate Display" button near the bottom.
  • Follow the step-by-step instructions to calibrate your display properly.

If you're using a MacBook or iMac, use the best profile for the factory display. Those using a Mac Mini or Mac Pro, make sure to calibrate your external display.

  • Go to System Preferences -> Display -> Color
  • Make sure "Color LCD" or "Display P3" is selected.
  • "Display P3" will only be available to newer Mac systems available after 2016.
  • Make sure "Night Shift" is shut off, otherwise it could cause a warmer or cooler cast to appear on your display during the day/evenings.
  • External monitors will need to be calibrated to match using either the built-in software under the "Color" tab or by a calibration kit.

What happened to UV coating? (Duracoat)

To improve environmental sustainability and stay up-to-date with new technology, we discontinued our Duracoat (UV coating) finish option. We are currently researching for the best alternative and will be able to offer a new solution in the near future. Spray coatings are still an option for prints and mounted prints.
