Color management

When using the portal it is possible to asses your files on color during the approval. This assumes that you are using a calibrated monitor capable of the full color spectrum. This concerns mainly monitors from manufacturers Eizo and Barco. If you do want to use these monitors please contact your order manager, a technical specialist will further guide you.

We use the ISO 12647-2 standard for our internal color proofs.

The used profiles take the type of paper and the type of press into account. If you do provide color proofs yourself, we ask you to download the Media wedge v3 tool (measuring strip) and place it onto the color proof. This color proof should be made according to the ISO standardized profiles. The Media wedge v3 tool allows you and us to carry out an inspection whether the proof can serve as a printing reference.


Image Separation

Like the color proofs, the image separations should also be performed with the correct corresponding ICC profile. If you work with a full RGB workflow, or a combination of CMYK and RGB images, you can create the PDF as described in the PDF export settings. You will also find examples of converting images from RGB to CMYK. 


Color Review

With the color proofs you can estimate the colors such as they will, approximately, look like in print. On your screen, you can only get a 'reasonable' evaluation of the colors with a calibrated monitor. On a normal monitor, color rating is absolutely impossible!
