USING THE COLOUR SWATCH FEATURE
To use the Colour Swatch feature, you must install the Colour
Swatch Utility. This is supplied on the CD-ROM that was supplied
with your printer.
The Colour Swatch function prints charts which contain a range
of sample colours. Note that this is not the full range of colours
that the printer can produce. Listed on each sample colour are
the corresponding RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values. This can be
used to pick specific colours in applications that allow you to
choose your own RGB values. Simply click the Colour Swatch
button (1) and choose from the options available.
An example of using the Colour Swatch function:
You wish to print a logo in a particular shade of red. The steps
you would follow are:
1. Print a colour swatch, then select the shade of red that
best suits your needs.
2. Take a note of the RGB value for the particular shade that
3. Using your program’s colour picker, enter these same RGB
values, and change the logo to that colour.
The RGB colour displayed on your monitor may not necessarily
match what was printed on the colour swatch. If this is the case,
it is probably due to the difference between how your monitor
and printer reproduce colour. Here, it is unimportant since your
primary objective is to print the required colour.
