Abstract
Gravure is the major printing process used for publication such as long-run
magazine, catalogs, newspaper, and miscellaneous commercial printing. In
gravure printing processes, color proofing is for the purpose of checking the color
to ensure that it is as desired, before proceeding to cylinder engraving. Recently,
the use of inkjet digital proofing gained popularity due to its benefits of high
speed, wider color gamut, and affordable prices for a device. Proofing on the
actual production stock more closely predicts print outcome. However, paper
properties have significant effect on the image reproduction for proofing
processes. Working with different inks and devices, the actual production printing
substrate can have a very different color gamut and behave differently in the
digital proofing process.
The color capability of a digital proofing system influences color gamut and
performance, which in turn affects accuracy of color for the press to match. This
