Spot color is widely used in commercial, product or packaging printing to obtain a colorful appearance. With the combination of the right software, inks and media, an inkjet printer can be treated as a digital proofer for spot color printing, providing significant time and cost savings compared to conventional procedures for jobs approval. An Epson Stylus Pro 4000 digital printer combined with two commercially available RIPs were tested and compared. ICC profiles were generated for the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 printer, using the actual production printing substrate and manufacturer recommended proofing paper. Color gamuts of different output combinations were compared and the quality of spot color reproduction was evaluated in terms of the ΔE in L*a*b* color space for selected spot colors.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
