    Idealliance SCCA Calculator

    Is there a way to load different ICC Profiles as well as different IT8 text files into this calculator, or am I stuck with what the calculator comes with? I'm using Excel on a Mac.

    Proofing

    Thanks for the spelling update ; ) Light pastels can be an issue; but with proper press maintenance can be maintained. We haven't had too many issues with very light tints.

    Proofing

    Yes - the proof we supply is more than just colour - graphics, fonts, trapping, moire, etc. are all looked at. When we read the colour bars and sometimes a P2P we always supply the verification process print report which states, among many other items; spectrophotometer used settings used, M0...

    Narseman - This works - I can massage it a bit. Thanks Gordo: I am well aware of 'Wet Proofs'. Unfortunately the ones we have come across have been made on a specific system, almost like a silkscreen system and they have been absolutely hopeless. I don't think we have ever seen a 'Wet Proof'...

So You Want to Invest In Inkjet

I Want to Invest in Inkjet, But…
Over the past few years I’ve watched a group of transactional and direct mail printers strategically shift from monochrome toner machines to full-color toner and inkjet presses. Most banished old black-only toner boxes but kept their color toner devices around because they anticipated needing both color inkjet and toner presses to meet customer needs. They were right then and continue to be right today. Because toner and inkjet can be better together. Read the Post
