I am not sure if my printer is capable to print the color charts. How can I find out before I buy?
You can download this reference and print it out. If all swatches are visible and the print looks like the file on the computer screen then your printer should be capable of printing the color charts.
Or do you have photos (e.g. from vacation) printed with your printer and the print looks fine and has no obvious color distortion? Then your printer most likely is capable of printing the color charts.
The range of printable color swatches – the „Gammut“ – depends on different factors: printer, paper, inks. At all three ends of a color’s property (Hue, Value, Chroma) good results can vary.
What does the package cost?
The “Munsell Color Book” by XRite costs about $900. There are also other Munsell books available for $75 and more. The Print@HOME Color Charts cost $12.90. The rest depends on your usage: Let’s say you only want to have the color swatches for skin tones then only two or three sheets need to be printed. Let’s also say you lose some swatches or they are worn you can print additional sheets whenever you want. If you buy one of the available books you better not lose the swatches.
Can I print the Color Charts on a laser printer?
It has not been tested how the color charts come out with a laser printer so no guarantee given here. It is advisable to print the Color Charts with an inkjet printer on a good quality photo paper like Kirkland Signature Professional Glossy Photo Paper (Affiliate link).
