has anyone had problems using Creative Montage? i ordered a couple of logos - they are great designs but the colors come up different depending on what program i use to look at them. they also print different (REALLY DIFFERENT in a bad way).

 

i got the logo in both JPEG and PDF - the PDF is fine but i can't insert that anyway - the JPEG is the one i want to use but the colors look really bad.

 

i contacted CM about this and she said the colors were the same and there was nothing she could dohuh.gif??

 

i was wondering if anyone else experienced this?

 

thanks girlies....

Could it be the printer? I guess I didn't notice a problem with my colors from them, but then again, they weren't that specific of a color- black, red & green.

 

Have you tried increasing the quality of the printing when you print them out? That could make a difference.

My colors were brown and orange. The stickers were spot on. I gave the jpeg file to my screenprinter who converted it into a pdf and put the logos on my bags. They came out great but the orange was a little off - like lighter than it was on the stickers/any monitor I viewed the logo on. Now that you mention it I don't know if that was the screenprinter's fault or CM's?

a couple things:

 

#1 if you monitor isn't calibrated you won't see things accurately

 

#2 most printers for that kind of thing need a cmyk color profile, i'm betting your jpeg is set to rgb color profile or some sort, so it would help both see it on a calibrated monitor and to make sure its cmyk. ask the printing company to make sure what color mode they need it in. feel free to pm me if you need more help.

i'd be happy to look at the file and convert it if you need.

thanks for the offer to help! CM made me another file that is a PNG and that seems to work just fine.

but just for info - my monitor is calibrated properly (did a check right away when i saw the JPEG)

the JPEG prints differently depending on where you print but the PDF and PNG work ok - the PDF can't be inserted so now that i have the PNG i can do all o fmy DIY stuff!!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
