Customer Question

Hi, I just bought my new Ricoh Aficio SG2100N. I am trying to do sublimation printing for a mug however the colors are not coming out nicely, it is all faded. I have installed an ICC profile and I am using Photoshop, I have also selected RGB color and I have set it to Printer manage color. Please help as I am not sure what is wrong.

Windows
Expert:  VanMagnus Systems replied 7 months ago.

What version. 10. 8.X, 7, ME, 2000, Vista or XP?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
the computer that will mainly work with the printer is running Windows 10, however I am not currently using that one as it doesn't have an editing program on it. The one that is currently being used is running Windows 7
Expert:  VanMagnus Systems replied 7 months ago.

We need the System with the Editing program installed.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
that would be currently the computer running Windows 7, it has photoshop CS6 also.
Expert:  VanMagnus Systems replied 7 months ago.

I think we will need to adjust the color from CS6. Maybe a little more Saturation?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Is there a way to make it like... what you see on the monitor is what you get on the print. Because the colors the monitor is showing is exactly that which I want it to print but obviously that is not what I get. It I change the saturation I don't like what I see on the monitor.
Expert:  VanMagnus Systems replied 7 months ago.

Send me what the Source File looks like?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
This is another mug print I am working on. I think this one you can see it better on.
