I'm having the hardest time making my monogram because none of the turquoise or aquas I try (RGB in Publisher) print the way they look on my screen. I realize that this is a standard issue, but I wish I could just have a page of blues or turquoises and aquas and their RGB codes so that I can just print it, see what if I can find the one I need, and then apply it to my logo. Does anyone know of anything of the sort? When I search for it all I find is a list of 3 Turquoises in a brief list of colors, sadly. SO FRUSTRATING!

(by the way - I'm pretty much using one of those standard 2 palm tree fonts and trying to go with either a turquoise + aqua, or turquoise + dark brown, or turquoise + bright red, or aqua + dark brown, or aqua + bright red, so you see how I'm going crazy!

Plus I bought dark brown and aqua pashminas for the OOT bags (onto which I'm screenprinting my logo. And I'm hopefully having turquoise vases at my wedding. AHH!

Right there with you - and my problem is that I've got different printers that all print the colors differently - I've got more of a "carribean turquoise" and a purple - but I've got two color printers at work and one at home and NONE of them print them the same - and the two at work are the same model. Weird...

 

Anyway, I keep tweaking it and eventually, I'm just going to have to commit to a printer and go for it.

RGB colors are different than CMYK colors which is actually the mode the professional printers are printing in. Even though it's changing a bit now. Your printer more than likely is printing in CMYK mode. So the best thing to do is print different colors and see which one you like the best when it prints. I hope this helps. If you are printing all of these yourself, print all of them out of the same printer to avoid color difference.

Many printers (professional) can print in a PMS color. That's one specially mixed color that combines CMYK. You can also set your document to a PMS color and then convert to CMYK (or whatever your home printer uses) to get a close match and then tweak the color.

 

I wanted my brown ink to match my Cocoa cardstock so I used this website to help me figure it out. That's the brand of paper I used but you might find it helpful. Aruba is a pretty Aqua and Belize is more of a turquoise.

I'm using a huge laser printer at work. I guess I should figure that out - but I am going to have a professional doing the silk screening so I'm not sure how to make sure that color is the same color as my printed materials - I can wait to do the printed stuff until after the bags with the silkscreen - but how do I know what the silkscreen will look like?

Ok, the best thing to do is to take your final printed materials to the printer and they can match the color exactly to yours. No problem, but definitely show them what you got.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
