    EFI BestColour and EPSON 7600

    You are probably not going to get any proofing reproduction using Web Roll paper. You best bet would be to select an ink-jet media whose design is for proofing, and then reference any one of the available newsprint profiles with absolute colormetric rendering.

    1bit tiff from Heidelberg Prinect to Agfa Printdrive
