CorelDRAW X6 CMYK/bitmap/artistic text printing issue.
I have this advertisement that I created using CorelDRAW X6. This advertisement is basically text. Black, purple(CMYK 68, 100, 20, 21) and gold(CMYK 0, 50, 98, 0). The advertisement was created from scratch using CorelDRAW's artistic text feature and it also includes a company logo that was a bitmap that was provided for me.
I am printing this on a bright white paper (98 brightness) 32 pound laser printing paper and I am using a Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W color printer.
Initially the flyer came out fine with a couple of exceptions. My artistic text was printing the wrong shade of gold and purple and bitmap logo was printing a little bit too jagged for my taste.
I solved the problem of the text printing wrong shade by simply converting it to a bitmap image and now it matches the logo perfectly.
My question is how do I solve the problem of the artistic text that I converted to bitmap and the original bitmap logo from coming out to jagged?
The most important thing here is for me to maintain the proper color of purple and gold as per the guidelines that have been given to me.
If I convert the text from a bitmap back to CorelDRAW's artistic text, how do I get it to print the colors correctly? Or is there a method to get these bitmaps to print more cleanly and sharper?
I guess I should ask the obvious question here. Am I at an impasse with the limitation of my Konica Minolta magicolor 1600 color laser printer? Do I need to just kind of accept the fact that at 1200 by 600 dpi, this is all I am going to get? Truthfully, It doesn't look that bad, I am just exercising my perfectionist habit. I want it to be sharper if at all possible.
