Whether in the fields of textile printing, UV, Sublimation, traditional inkjet, etc ... if the printers provided designers with color charts containing colors that they would be able to reproduce on their jet d ink, designers and contractors would have an exact idea of the colors they would get in the final print.
The principle is simple, it suffices to print charts containing the colors of the color charts (Pantone, RAL, etc.) on the printing system and the media which will be used during the production of the printed matter. These test charts will be measured and converted into color charts which will then be used by graphic designers in their software (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, CorelDraw, etc.), as well as by printers who can import them into their RIPs (Caldera, ONYX, EFI, Wasatch, Epson Edge Print, etc ...)
In the chapter "Color table" you will find the procedures for:
Import color charts (for example: Pantone, RAL, etc ...)
Create color charts by measuring samples of leather, fabric, vinyl, etc ... using a spectrophotometer
Mix and update existing color charts
In this chapter, you will use the Print Control module to:
Create a test chart in pdf format
Measure the staff
Generate the new color chart
The names of the colors contained in the color chart can be codified in order to avoid any conflicts with the reference colors. For example: PANTONE 106 C will be renamed V7000-Vinyl 106 C V7000-Vinyl 106 C will be the rendering of the Pantone 106 C reproduced on the Epson SC-V7000 UV table
The use of color charts in design software will allow graphic designers to have an exact idea of the colors they will obtain during the final print (provided they have a screen capable of faithfully reproducing the colors)
Or to other tools (CorelDraw, etc.)
Importing the color chart into the RIP will allow printers to automatically manage the colors contained in their customers' files.
The printing of the color chart can be produced directly on the printer and the media used. It will serve as a reference for graphic designers, sales representatives, contractors and end customers.
