Why Don't Printed Colors Match What I See on the Monitor?

You have to understand that it is almost impossible to replicate the colours you see on screen with those in print. They are two entirely different media - the screen displays colours according to transmitted light in the RGB (red, green blue) gamut, the paper displays colours according to the absorption & reflection of light of CMYK colours (cyan, magenta, yellow and black).
Printing colours: No single device is capable of reproducing all visible colours. Colour’s need to be specified by a code CMYK, RGB or PMS “A device that is able to reproduce the entire visible color space is an unrealized goal within the engineering of color displays”
