Abstract
Clear Color management with ICC profiles is used to
investigate reproduction of Pantone Matching System
colors for different digital printers. Three digital printers:
XEROX Phaser 8200, FUJI PictroProof II and EPSON
Stylus Photo 2200 were tested and their measured color
gamuts were compared. The quality of reproduction is
evaluated in terms of the usual E in L*a*b* color space
for selected PANTONE Matching System colors.
Introduction
The advantages of conventional printing techniques, such as
gravure, flexography or lithography, are usually fully
realized when long print runs are required [1]. Large print
quantities compensate for relatively long lead-times and
high initiation costs (i.e. high cost of gravure presses),
coupled with relatively high press set up times and make-
ready.
