COLOR PROOFING

Matchprint, Chromalin, Dupont Waterproof and Kodak Approval are some of the color proofing devices or prepress systems capable of producing contract colour press-proofs. ColorMage’s prepress proofing systems can deliver a proof to meet or surpass the specifications for any type of color proof imaginable.

ColorMage proofs are valuable design tools to visualize metallics, matte and gloss spot varnishes and the blending and overprinting of Pantone or other spot colors.

Color proofing on foils, metallics, transparent or shrink films are standard procedures for ColorMage. CMYK or Pantone spot colors can be opaque, transparent or both. We can create spot whites of varying degrees of opaqueness and customize matte and gloss spot varnishes.

Our proofs are essential for more than just color approval.

Standard CMYK inkjet color proofs and laser prints cannot predict surprises that might surface on the printing press.

ColorMage proofs can be created on the actual stock that the job will be printed on revealing the effect that the stock finish and white point will have on the appearance of the final printed piece.

Our halftone proofs can reveal how the screening for the particular print process can effect the gradients and nuances of the images to be printed. A screened proof will reveal ahead of time if the screen angles chosen for spot colors or CMYK simulated spots have the potential to create a moiré effect.

A ColorMage proof will clearly communicate all the facets of your design, something a PDF or 3D rendition can not accomplish.
