    Black_proof_black_print

    Hi all,

    I have third event with the same theme. There is black color of 50% (0/0/0/50) in a job (15% and 37% in the other two jobs earlier). This black is important at this job. The RIP adds blue dots to the black at a proof (Fogra51). I checked it with a dandruff. Printer told me that there is no blue tint in the black at the print sheet - because he has got - 0/0/0/50. How to fix it correctly? The customer wants to see identical black in the proof and in the print.

    Give it up! Proof systems never print from the gray from black tint only. Black and white proofing will always give a different result than gray on the printed material. But there is a workaround. Use a digital printing machine so you can produce colors very close to your print on your own paper. AND your gray will be gray. Just calibrate the digital printing machine to the standard you use.
