Verify that you and the printer have the same printer driver. That way there is
less of a possibility that what you see when you print the copy and what the
copy will look like when the printer prints it, will look different. Not a guarantee,
just less chance of variance, if your printer drivers are the same. There are other
variables, such as the quality of the paper, the types of ink, and a host or print
technology issues, that may still create more variance than you bargain for.

I guess the idea is to reduce the possibility of differences to a minimum.

I hope this helps.

What I have expressed here is my own idea and not shared by my employer
or my colleagues.
