Little Contrast in Saturated Colors

Printing Pitfall: Little contrast between saturdated colors

Through the absorbtion of ink in the textile fibers during printing and fixing the contrast between similar colors may partly or completely disappear. These similar colors mix themselves on the edges of neighboring color areas, making the borders less clear. It's important to note that the printer cannot print as many colors as the human eye can see, and also, fewer than exist in the RGB color space used to create the design. That's why we say:

It's better to have strong contrast between neighboring colors.
