Default When ordered to print orange, the printer prints a reddish color

Whenever i receive an order for a shirt design that contains orange, the printer prints a reddish color. At first glance it looks red but when you look at it you can argue there is an orange touch to it. I'd much rather have it be pure orange. Knowing this problem, before i printed the shirt i adjusted the tiff file in photoshop and brought up the brightness of the orange up.

Help???

Printer? Ink? Design software?

I know Kornit provides each machine with their own color charts, that you can print, so you can match your colors better. Each color chart printed on your machine, will give you the correct percentages of C, M Y, and K, to get to the color you are looking for. If you cannot find it in the Kornit software folder, they also have it on their website, for download.

This will help on a color correction level, at least. Otherwise, you can have the Kornit applications people, linearize your machine, for better color accuracy, but that will probably cost you quite a bit more than just starting with the color charts.

Why do they have to contact you by email? Why can't you help them in the open forum?
