Hi I'm just doing my first Blurb book and have decided to use the standard background theme colour of khaki. I have run off a dummy copy of the cover to see how the colour looks and it is a lot lighter and brighter than the dull khaki I have on screen. I know my printer is not spot on so that hopefully is the reason however before I make the order I just wanted to check other peoples experiences. How faithfull have the colours been compared to on screen when you actually have the hard copy of the book?
Dust jackets are printed on shiny paper which does make the colors shinier than they would be on imagewrap. These are 2 of my books that were dust jackets. The actual covers looked identical to what I saw on my monitor. You can't test print covers on a home computer. I don't know why Blurb doesn't allow this. It would still have the watermark on it.
