This has REALLY pissed me off. For years infact, now I am so pissed off I am determined to figure it out. The story goes... I have a brochure I am working on in Quark. It is a 5 colour job as we need a bright orange colour and CMYK printed digitally just doesnt cut it. Anyway this fifth colour is Pantone 151 (orange) it is used quite liberally throughout the brochure n blocks of solid colour and type etc. I have a vector EPS drawn in freehand made up of Pantone 151 (exactly the same) but when I import it into Quark it is a total different shade to the Pantone 151 used in Quark. Technically the colours are exactly the same (151) but if i print it out on my printer as a test (yes i know its printed in CMYK) the two colours are still different. If i PDF the document the colours are different. Someone PLEASE tell me why! This problem is not just limited to this job, it has plagued me throughout my whole career at various places and different macs. Im certain I am not doing anything wrong and I havent missed anything as I have spent days trying to figure this out on this job alone. The EPS is drawn in Freehand is definately a spot colour as is the quark colour and is 'saved as' editable EPS. I then import to Quark. What am i doing wrong if anything at all. Does anybody else get this problem? I absolutely frickin hate Quark purely because of this issue but I dont know / nor have time to learn InDesign. Please help.
