Certain combinations of ink and paper don’t mix. Here are a few to avoid. The ubiquitousness color printers allow for checking colors but sometimes that color of paper isn’t available. Be careful but don’t be afraid to do something different. Check with your printer, that’s what they are there for.
- Transparent ink on colored paper can disappear
- Blue ink on dark green paper
- Yellow on white paper
- Black ink on red paper
These combinations can work, but best stay away or develop the color scheme in concert with your printer.
