Why Does the Print Not Look Like Whats on My Screen?

If you have ever printed anything from home, this has probably happened to you. You find a great image on the screen ... you create something in a drawing app ... AND then you print. Why doesn't it look like what I am seeing in the screen? Why is it fuzzy? Why does it have different colors? Why? Why? Why?

We have seen this time and time again when one of our client's tries to print their own exhibits from their home printer. The problems is since computers and printers are readily available, it seems like matching what on the screen to what is being printed is easy - BUT ITS NOT. There is an art form to making sure you have the correct pixelation, size and color matching to replicate the photograph or exhibits that is trying to be printed.

Creating color accurate exhibits for deposition may be crucial to your case. Especially if you are handling a case that addresses medical conditions such as jaundice where color accuracy at the time the photograph was taken is a key element of any photograph exhibit.

Many lawyers only think about the color of the exhibit once they are preparing for trial and creating their exhibits. The reality is that in order to establish a good record for your case, the exhibits introduced in deposition should be accurate and hold the opposing party's feet to the fire. If you are going depose the treating physicians, nurses, parents, etc., why not have those exhibits ready to go at the their depositions; video taped depositions. By testifying to the exhibits at deposition you can eliminate issues with authenticity and correct representation.

Of course, not just ANY printer or graphic design artist will do.

Many so-called legal graphics firms and illustrators outsource their printing services. Meaning that they only design, but do not handle the production of the design. There are several reasons why this is not ideal to your case. Moreover, the use of in-house printing side by side with designer is key for quality control (i.e. color of photograph blow-ups, bent corners, etc.) It is a rare that a designer will not take pride in his creation and ensure that the print is exactly like his design or an accurate depiction of a photograph. APVisuals by providing in-house printing services, makes sure that the print is what you see on a computer screen. When dealing with a case addressing scars, the color of a floor that creates an optical illusion, and injuries in general the mere change of a shade of color can impact the outcome of your case.

We are just a call away. If you have a case that we may be able to help you with re: design, graphics, printing, etc. we look forward to hearing from you.
