Another Gray Area: A “Manufacturing” Approach To Color Management

For decades, printers’ approach to color management has been highly subjective. A proof is examined in a light box, compared to a press sheet, color keys are adjusted, and that was it.

In some cases, that works fine, but it can introduce errors and result in a job that may not be repeatable. For example, a job that needs to be reprinted may need to precisely match the first run.
