Abstract
Spot color is widely used in commercial, product or
packaging printing to obtain a colorful appearance. With the
combination of the right software, inks and media, an inkjet printer
can be treated as a digital proofer for spot color printing,
providing significant time and cost savings compared to
conventional procedures for jobs approval. An Epson Stylus Pro
4000 digital printer combined with two commercially available
RIPs were tested and compared. ICC profiles were generated for
the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 printer, using the actual production
printing substrate and manufacturer recommended proofing paper.
Color gamuts of different output combinations were compared and
the quality of spot color reproduction was evaluated in terms of the
E in L*a*b* color space for selected spot colors.
Introduction
Recently, the trend in the printing industry includes shorter
run lengths and work with fast turnaround times. New
