He is the leader of the Veterans Print Studio a Non Profit we have created(or I should say we are creating).Our goal is to put veterans with employment barriers back to some kind of work in the print industry. I have very little experience in the print world, I am an artist.Enough said for the moment. We received a donation of a itek DPM 2000 CPS running windows NT with harlequin script-works rip.It has issues that is what brought me to this forum. I hope to get to know some of you. If anyone has any insight please let me know. Also this is my first forum. Can't you tell... Thanks Curtis

Re: Introduce yourself

Re: Introduce yourself

Hi all, I'm a print and internet graphic and web designer, been in one facet or another of this world since finishing Cal Poly SLO in GrC. That was 1977. Since then did a lot of publications and prepress work, Up on .pdf's, Adobe gamut, Quark, MS Office and the rest of the usual suspects, mostly on a Mac.

Not much integrated workflow experience, but I've worked with imposition programs, preflighting procedures, automatic publication generation via Quark plugins, but nothing really grand.

Been freelancing since my job as Production Manager of our little regional weekly dried up and "consolidated" into something unlovely, but spent 9 years at a regional daily with 80,000 circulation in a number of jobs from Staff Artist to Commerical Print Specialist.

Always looking to keep up as best I can, hence my membership here.
 
Hello everybody,

I'm dtp operator and also responsible for the prepress it installation in a medium printing facility in Belgium.
We work with Prinergy 5 and Insite 6 from Kodak.
Output is done on Fuji Luxel T9800 CTP.

I hope to find some answers here, and maybe help somebody else.

Regards,
Peter.

Color Optimized?

Ink
by Noel Ward, Editor@Large
Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
