Q) I’m trying to print a spot/pantone colour for my customer but I just can’t get the printer to print it accurately. What can I do?

A) Have you calibrated and profiled your printer to the media you are printing onto? If not, you are unlikely to be able to accurately print spot colours without a lot of labour to modify the setup or file. If you have calibrated, perhaps the spot colour is “out of gamut” meaning that your media/printer/ink combination is simply not capable of producing that colour.
