    M3 measurements

    Just wondering of the reason(s) a offset printer may use M3 with polarizer filter on when measuring colour bars on press sheet. I might be uninformed but I thought M3 was used in the garment industry.

    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...

When measured the colour bar 'Passes' when measured against Gracol 2013 or when measured against Fogra 39. We also proof uncoated. The colour bar is there for...

    Proofing

    Does anyone have or know of a good definition of a contract proof? We colour manage an Indigo Press for our proofing. We proof for printers worldwide; usually on their supplied stock. Some printers will put a loop to the proof and see 'dots' on the proof that are not in the file and then all...

    Proofing

    Does anyone have a good definition of what a proof actually is. Example: "A proof is a simulation of what a printing press should produce ......." or something similar.
