Don't see much mention here of CMYK workflows, but here goes... The ad agency where I work has recently acquired a 1520 in an attempt to provide better color internally than is possible w/ our Canon/Fiery to date. PressReady seems to be doing a respectable job handling the PostScript end of things and color is decidedly in the ballpark. All in all, a remarkable improvement. Couple questions-- Can anyone recommend a paper w/ characteristics like the commercial proofing stock that our prepress vendors use for their analog and digital proofs? Epson glossy paper is so much brighter and bluer so as to make it fairly useless in eventual comparisons. My experiment using Dupont Waterproof digital proofing paper failed miserably w/ the Epson ink sitting on top in a wet puddle. With respect to PressReady, does anyone know whether it's actually doing a CMYK>CMYK transform on-the-fly (from my declared Sheetfed Coated to Epson/Glossy Paper), or is there something more malignant going on? What I'd *like* to do, if possible, is create a custom profile for the paper I settle on and somehow trick the PressReady driver into displaying it in its Paper Type drop-down. Am I in uncharted territory (again)? Steve - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
