One problem faced when digitally printing textiles is ensuring that the colours of the final printed output are a satisfactory match to those of the design on a computer monitor or the original artwork. In other words, that there is a close enough match for the designer to feel that their intended outcomes have not been compromised. Anecdotal evidence from colleges and universities with digital print facilities suggests that they regularly encounter problems in this area of colour matching. This paper discusses the initial stages of an investigation into colour accuracy in digitally-printed textiles in the higher education environment.
