True Colors . . . Mobile Devices

 Mobile Device vs Printed File from Computer
We all Love our Mobile Devices, but when it comes to Printables, it's best to look at your Files on a Computer.  Mobile Devices Do Not have accurate colors when viewing files, which most of the time, gives everything a weird color appearance (which can lead to panic!) 

So, if you've looked at your Printable File on your Mobile Device and notice things aren't looking the same as you thought they once did, check the file on a Computer first before Panicking!  You will Not Believe the Difference!  Not only will Colors Look Different, Elements of the Designs can also Disappear, such as Polka Dots - which will also lead to panic!

Mobile Devices also Compress Files when sending them to be printed - and can lead to a lower quality print than what it was designed to be and was emailed to you.  This is why it's Important on the Customer's End - to NOT Use Mobile Devices for your Printables!  

Colors can also Vary Greatly based on the type of Computer Monitors.  Different Brands vary and also PCs to Laptops can Vary Greatly!  So keep this in mind before you Stress Out!
