I would like to learn more about colour preparation when printing. I am aware that the printed colours appear different to that on screen, but I still manage to be surprised with the final results. On many occasions I simply run out of time to do a test print, and therefore do not end up with the colour tones I was after. By learning more about the RGB and CMYK colour profiles, I may be able to have a better understanding of what to expect when printing coloured files. Pantone swatch books seem like a great tool to have, as the exact swatch numbers are listed for reference. This would help in identifying certain colours that relate well from screen to print.
