AuthorSubject: Profiling the proofer for cmyk   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Allan Shiffrin
Posted on Sat Aug 30, 2003 10:18 AM

I understand the general thought process of profiling the proofer for cmyk conversions that have been discussed in many threads. I am, however, confused as to the execution of this under certain circumstances.

Following are some initial discussion questions that I'm hoping will allow better success at fully understanding this approach:

Assuming the printer uses a Kodak Approval and prints on a variety of web presses (they do a good job of maintaining process controls to get consistent results from press to press) and the printer is willing to proof our profiling target of choice.

1) If we generate a cmyk conversion to this device are we comprising the file by converting to a custom space rather than a generic space (like swop v2 if they are trying to achieve that as a standard)? We had been under the impression that we should use the swop v2 for conversion and then cross render our proof to the profile of the printer's proofing device.

2) One of our regular clients prints on 32# groundwood stock (a #5 sheet). Now the printer, I believe, uses a simulation when they output their proofs of the paper white rather than laminating to the actual paper sample. How does that scenario affect the ability to create a cmyk profile?

I'm sure there are many more questions to discuss for this topic...hopefully this will be a good start.
