    Which software and proofer has a best reproduction and which software has the best editing for spot colors?

    Thnx

    Both are good. But you should know that it is impossible to simulate tints of spot colors, unless you know the exact gradation characteristic of your spot color on your press.

    GMG is currently in a single spot color reduction is the best, but in special colors and other color overlay effects can not be restored.

    Yep both EFI and GMG solutions are great. Combined with with some Epson printer and proofing paper from EFI. I am using EFI Fiery and ColorProof Xpress and I am pretty satisfied.

    Since spot colors are mixed from various base colors, they behave differently. In an ideal world every ink supplier would mix a certain spot color the same way, and every printing press would behave the same way, but we live in a real world, so the programmers can't predict the behaviour (the exact gradation) of a particular ink/press. But if you are using a few spot colors frequently you can measure their gradation and control it - in EFI spot color editor you can adjust the gradations of individual spot colors.

    Here is a test which i googled out for You:

    You have a lot of software on market. Somebody say that EFI is the best, other that GMG is the best, someone say Starproof, esko have his own. All of this are same. I was on presentation all of this on fair and everything is same, just little diferences. only big diferencies are price. Whatever you will choose you can't wrong
