    Grey Balance at Press

    A few of us believe that printing to grey balance at press is important. Many can’t afford G7 or a consultant for help. Nearly all the RIP’s have a ‘measured’ file and a “WANTED” file. Has anybody ever supplied the values for this ‘Wanted’ file? We’ll I have, I measured many sheets and averaged...

    Gcr for pdf

    In Photoshop, some colors do change a little (depends on the color) - less change from dedicated software. In either case, there will be less variation in color during the press run than a traditional or UCR scan.

    Gcr for pdf

    Here’s my nickels worth- GCR affects all tri-chromatic colors (Y-M-C). The ‘graying’ component of a color is reduced and replaced with black. I.e. “reds” graying component is Cyan. Blues graying component is Mag. GCR - “pushes” the tone scale to be more saturated or less saturated in the...

    Gray Balance consistency run

    Printing 50/49/40 is impossible! These values are at or near the midtone area - where the midtone dot gain changes under the best conditions (+/- 2%} is the standard deviation of a good press! So as long as these gains climb together- you get a ‘darker’ grey - when one goes up or down relative...

    G 7 certification

    “If you imaged plates from linear film and printed using ISO conforming ink hues to the specified densities then you would automatically achieve grey balance. Great” No such luck! The dot gains make grey balance (at density). The proofs were Matchprint SWOP. At density the midtone gain was...

    G 7 certification

    So here’s a little ‘history’ of color reproduction. In the ‘old days’ we had ‘trade houses’ which produced color separations for the printers. I was one of those - so how did we know how to make the separation’s? We made them all to SWOP - (Specifications for Web Offset Publications) - based on...
