  • PIA adds new UCR & GCR Color Separation course

    PIA has launched a new UCR and GCR for Color Separation course to their iLearning Center. The course is designed to promote the understanding of why UCR & GCR are necessary when converting images from RGB to CMYK, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. The course covers the following:
    • Color gamut comparison & RGB versus CMYK color spaces,
    • How color is separated, gamut compression, and rendering intent,
    • Under color Removal (UCR) color separation techniques,
    • Gray component replacement (GCR) color separation techniques,
    • Comparing UCR and GCR, when, why and how to use.
    The course is available to PIA members as a free benefit of membership. For more information contact Joe Marin at

Print Embellishment Goes
Straight To The Bottom Line

InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
