True story: when I first got a proof copy from Whitlock/360 Digital, it used the original version of the cover. Printed colors come out different from on-screen colors, which, in this case, meant that “pleasantly atmospheric tint” came out as “stifling wash of magenta.”
So I softened it, sent an updated version, and okayed the full-on printing.
Not long afterward, I got an email from the print department saying “so, ah, we know you changed the text in the new file, but there’s been a serious color shift too — did you do that on purpose?”
And when I said yes, the reply was, and I quote, “Great, we do like the new one better for sure.”
…so, yeah, maybe they would’ve said they “liked better” whichever version I said it was supposed to be, but it was encouraging! (And, listen, that’s some Good Customer Service that they were paying enough attention to notice.)
