Map colors are different when printed out. How to recreate legacy print out colors?

How do I recreate map colors that printed out (circa 2011) in different shades then what I am seeing now in ArcMap (version 10.5)? The older map print outs were exported as jpgs in ArcMap in 2011, and the colors are lighter and brighter than what I currently see on my computer monitor in ArcMap and my current print outs on the office's copy machine. The RGB and HSV values for these colors appear to be the same as what was used in the legacy maps. 

Anyone had a similar experience with color shifts like this? 

I would be very grateful any suggestions on how to recreate colors.
