Get the Most from your Color Copier

Getting the brightest and boldest colors is not just about getting a powerful office copier. Understanding how to use your office color copier is probably more important than the machine itself when it comes to getting the best prints. Unfortunately, too many people never take the time to figure their machine out, and spend wasted time making dull prints. If you want to get the most from your color copier then follow our guide on getting the brightest, boldest colors from your color copier.

What you need to understand is that your copier doesn’t automatically know what kind of job you are going to do. There are settings inside every office copier that are there to help you specify the job you are trying to do. Using these settings correctly is the only way to get them most from your color copier.

  1. Set your print resolution. Make sure that it is as high as it can go. Most printers have settings that go as high as 1800 x 600 dpi, or even 2400 x 1200. More dpi means better pictures.
  2. Set your print driver. Make sure you change from the text setting to the photo setting. This will prepare your printer for a bolder image.
  3. Set print drive to full color. This will open a new range of colors available.
  4. Use Adobe PostScript print drive. Your greens, blues, and reds will be changed into cyan, magenta, yellow, and black values. This will create a fully color spectrum.
  5. Check your digital format. Jpeg, PDF, and PNG will create better images than TIFF or Bitmap photo.

If you follow these steps then you should be on your way to getting the most from your color copier. You may be shocked about how great your color prints begin to look. Just remember, your settings are your best ally to getting amazing results from your color copier.
