I am designing a writing pad and I have created two folders that group the files into the "Front" and the "Back" of the design while using a Solid Colour layer as my background colour/base layer so to speak.
Everything looks fine up until I decided to print a combined PDF of the front and back design on my normal printer. While all the elements and details came out in good quality, the background colour looks almost a shade or two different from the front or the back, or the other copies I printed to test. It isn't a huge difference (like black or white) however you do see that one is maybe brighter while the other one is darker and so on.
I checked everything. The hex code matches in all the files (not that there are many, I just meant my saved files). I uploaded the PDF into my Photoshop and even used the Eyedropper tool to check the colour of THAT background but it all is the same hex code. I checked for effects, drop shadows, glows, etc, nothing. So I'm really just confused.
Could anybody help me out please? Is this my printer? Will this be the same problem I face when I send it to a proper printer?! Below is my layers panel for an example. :)
