Abstract
For both printers and clients, accurate proofs are needed
before going to press. The proof should predict what the job would
look like on the press. Press proofing is an integral part of the
printing process. It is important to customers that the colors on a
digitally printed proof will match the colors printed on an offset
press. The Larry Brink Printing Laboratory at Western Michigan
University uses a Xerox Docucolor 12 for printing proofs for a
Shinohara offset press. This project examines digital color
proofing the offset press. In order to accomplish this, an ICC
profile target was printed on multiple substrates on the offset press
and the digital printer. These were measured to create output
profile for the two devices on the different substrates. These
profiles were used to simulate the offset press with the digital
printer. The proof was verified both numerically and visually. The
experimental procedure, results and reasons for differences are
