That's not as easy as it sounds, since monitors and printers use
different color systems. Monitors use an RGB system, where red, green
and blue light is combined to make the different colors. Mixing all
together makes white. Printers, on the other hand, use CMYK, where cyan,
yellow, and magenta are combined. Mixing all those together produces
black. Converting from one to the other is fraught with difficulty, or
so I've read.
