Would that make the switch to 400 an easier target to hit?
It is the customer that is choosing the colors.
It is us who are saying that the absence of yellow will make it easier.
1) I believe both have yellow within. Not sure.
2) I do not understand how one would be "easier" if there should be...
Thanks for the feedback Steve,
What you mentioned in your reply makes sense. And even though I am not well-versed in this part of the process, I can grasp what you mean. And you have put my thoughts and guesses into words.
I just wanted to make sure that I understood what was happening a bit...
Also, I am unsure of the color shift because I don't have exact numbers and documentation readily available.
From the visual review, it is not noticeable per print. Only when I saw each printout sample side-by-side and wondered why they didn't match.
That's when I found out each of the...
Are you are printing spot colors (Pantone) or CMYK process builds, simulations of them?
If spot, are they just solids or do they contain screen tint dots?
How much of a color shift was there between press runs (dE)?
Unsure on this.
Were jobs exact reprints or similar graphics...
Let me first preference by saying I don't have all the nomenclature and vocabulary for inks down. Also, I work in Flexo so some terminology might differ.
We currently have a customer that had designs printed. On each print, there was a color shift. The prints were all within a few days of each...
The only thing we could see that ended up being the solution to this issue; was to ensure that when the backing substrate was being laid out, to ensure it does not bubble or crease.
As I watched our platemaker perform their duties, I saw that they would place the substrate in the carriage but...
To add to this. I have reviewed how the plates were made and the process of the platemaker.
The only thing I can see, that might have been an issue with their process is when the plate backing is lied down with the liquid resin in between. There may have been points in which the backing was not...
We are a flexo print facility and have been having some low spot issues recently. We have liquid pour plates and a WH Press. I have put a question out to my vendor for assistance but figured I'd double-down and head to the forums for confirmation. In the attached images you can see the...
My apologies for not clarifying the first go-round.
But we still got to the goal of putting my mind at ease.
Agreed, getting the process down is better than getting the fancy-schmancy broad brush to make things "better".
Once we know our process is correct, then we can...
Thank you for your responses Gordo.
This really puts my mind at ease.
This may be. Though I may have some misinformation or may need to read up more. I was told capping plates would widen exposure latitude and give less distortion on the printing surface. Allowing for deeper reliefs and less...
In my facility, we produce 0.112 plates and do 90% linework and 10% screened work @ 55LPI on 300 annilox (depending on graphics, then it can go to 85LPI on 600 annilox). We consistently hold a 4% dot. We can push for 3% if need be. and 99% of our art doesn't call for 2% dot.
I have a customer that states when we send them a finished product, they compare it in an automated system that checks it against the master, digital copy. The two images are compared and show a 'sort of' negative visual of the inconsistencies in print v. master.
I have searched all...
