    I get this ALL the time from my customers. I've worked on office machines for 30 years. I'll get call after call about "the colors don't look right". Most of the time it is the brightness of their paper stock that is the problem. They calibrate it with say 92 bright, and then a few days later, use a different paper stock, that has a different reflective value and then the colors don't look right.
    I carry a sample pad from a paper company, that has 15 "shades" of red through a black window, only showing a small square of color and it says "which one is red". Some look glossy, some look almost brown. When I open it up and show it to them, they say "oh, the paper makes that much difference?". Deeerrrrpppppp
