Chapter 11. Output Options > Differences Between Page and Screen

Differences Between Page and Screen

The differences between the printed page and monitor screen are many. However, do not overlook the differences that exist within those two categories. There is often a huge difference between preparing artwork for newsprint and for a glossy magazine (see Chapter 25, “Commercial Printing and Trapping Issues”). And not all RGB work is destined for the World Wide Web. Nonetheless, the major categorical differences must be examined before any specialized discussion.

Note

In a discussion of “print” output, it is important to differentiate between commercial four-color presses and other types of output. Inkjet, grayscale laser, dot-matrix, thermal, and dye-sublimation printers are not generally CMYK devices. (However, CMYK inkjet printers are available, and color laser printers are typically CMYK devices.)

In general, this discussion will consider the term print to encompass only CMYK output, and primarily four-color process printing. The subject of printing will be discussed in depth in Chapter 25.
