Did you download the drivers for your specific printer? You can go to canon’s website to do that. They should be available for windows. if you did download the drivers do you have an advanced option button at the bottom of your print settings? I would check in there and see if the option to changes colors is in there.
As far as the colors looking less bright, I’m not 100% sure as I’ve not used Cricut, but I have heard that other shops have had that same issue when they try to print straight from cricut. I would try saving the file as a PDF and printing it that way and see if that helps.
So the reason I have the lessons releasing this way is because most people voted that they would like videos released weekly since I wouldn’t have been able to launch the full course until September. I’m still trying to balance my shop and YouTube stuff as well, so doing more than three lessons a week would be harder for me to do and keep up with everything. In a perfect world, I’d love to have already wrapped up the course, but I want it to be the best It can be and still be able to balance all of my other responsibilities. But thank you so much for being patient with me, if I’m able to get more done than I will post ahead of schedule, but at the moment I don’t see that happening.
