Dupont is also supplying a commercial proofing stock for the EFI/Epson 5000, I looked into it awhile ago but it's expensive, but should perform well in your 1520, and is geared toward a CMYK proofing standard. > > 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.

I suspect that PressReady is doing a CMYK-->RGB transform (unless you select UNSPECIFIED in the Adobe Print Color control panel) since some gray steps I sent to PR came out with CMY in the black steps. Don't know why you would want to trick PR into putting a profile in the Paper Type menu, you can put a custom in the Print Color panel, but again I suspect that it will be doing a CMYK->RGB transform. The workflow as I understand it is to select Unspecified in the Print Color panel and select your custom profile in AdobePS.
