Designer? Photographer? Publisher? In-house prepress? When working with certified proofing, it's simply a matter of get the proof right and the print will be right on a standard press. The big advantage is that this brings the decision making process back from press-side to the prepress or retouching or colour correction area.

Proofer set-up is a service that's carried out on site. Of course the proofing process can be set to simulate many different printing conditions, e.g. to successfully simulate an ISO standard or GRACoL press.

My article: Making and testing an ISO Standard Proof is here

I provide a range of solutions for printed proofing including a range of proof paper and software RIPs as well as proof analysis and proof optimisation software and high quality measurement sensors. 


gmg logoRather than recommend specific software options here, I'd prefer to talk to you about solutions I work with including gmg, basICColor and ColorBurst, all very capable and quite different. I feel it's important to discuss your needs and expectations, I think that's better than talking to a salesman?
Click here email me and to find out more.

Proof check options include basICColor's catch-control, control strip measurement and analysis software and basICColor MatchPatch, an ingenious proofer profile optimisation software product to optimise accuracy.

Read about making and testing an ISO Standard Proof here. Also read about the advantages of using good prepress colour management here.
