  • Page 7: Digital Print

    Digital print Digital technology has changed many facets of business and industry today. Computing and communications technology has allowed companies to revolutionise the manufacturing process – from producing goods and then hoping to sell them, to just-in- time production, where products are sold first and then manufactured to order, reducing waste, inventory and cost.
  • Page 8 The digital colour presses that dominate the market now – and for the foreseeable future – are all toner based. They utilise electrophotography, either with liquid toners (Indigo), or dry toners (IBM, Kodak-Heidelberg, MAN Roland, Xeikon and Xerox). The market for colour print can be split into segments defined by run length and specific applications.
  • Page 9: Digital Print Workflow

    digital print Digital print workflow The entire process for the production of a printed document can be broken-down into three phases: prepress (which includes all steps after the design is completed up to the point where the job is printing), press or printing (the printing phase), and postpress or finishing (all the steps required to finish the job after printing and before distribution).
  • Page 10 Newer technologies today allow printers to produce plates or image carriers directly from electronic files. Called CTP (short for Computer-to-Plate) or DI (short for Direct Imaging on a press), these technologies are designed to streamline the prepress requirements of offset presses. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 1 - 4...
  • Page 11: Press

    digital print Press The job is now at the stage where it’s ready to be printed. If the job is being printed on a DocuColor 2045 or 2060, the operator will have calibrated the press earlier in the day and loaded the right paper. The job is then RIPped (using the appropriate settings) and printed.

    – either pay a very high unit price, print many more copies than required (most of which would be wasted), or accept that the work can’t be done economically. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 1 - 6...
  • Page 13: Just-In-Time Printing

    digital print The DocuColor 2045 and 2060 now allow consumers of print to have high quality colour work printed cost effectively on short runs – anywhere from a one-off up to 2,000 copies. You no longer have to buy long print runs to drive unit costs down. Because a digital press prints each page differently, you can even print one book at-a- time in a single print run.
  • Page 14: Distribute And Print

    No longer do you need to print first and wait for it to be distributed, you can now distribute your document instantly world-wide and have it printed locally without delay. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 1 - 8 • Brochures •...
  • Page 15: Variable Information Printing

    digital print Variable information printing A unique characteristic of digital print is the ability to print every page differently. Not only does this mean you can print a multi-page document (like a book) in a single print run, but you can also personalise each sheet or page to an individual. It is achieved by changing certain text (like name and address) and/or images on the page.
  • Page 16: Use Of Colour

    Until recently, colour was too expensive to use in everyday applications. With the introduction of Xerox solutions like the DocuColor 1250, 2045 and 2060, everyone now has the ability to produce high quality full colour documents at an affordable price –...

  • Page 18: Digital Blanket

    Significant improvements in image quality can be attributed to the Digital Blanket used in the DocuColor 2000 Series. The Digital Blanket passes under the four printing stations where the image is transferred to the blanket. The four colours of the image are assembled on the blanket –...
  • Page 19: Tracs

    TRACS To ensure consistency from first print to last, the DocuColor 2000 Series utilises a technology called TRACS (Toner Reproduction Auto Correction System). TRACS automatically measures 16 levels of density and colour, and makes adjustments on the fly.

  • Page 21: Image Size/Paper Size

    image reproduction process Image size/paper size The DocuColor 2045 and 2060 accept standard paper sizes of A4, A3 and SRA3. They will also accept non-standard paper sizes, from 182 mm to 320 mm in height, and 182 mm to 488 mm in width. The DocuColor 2045 and 2060 will print to within 4 mm of each paper edge.

  • Page 23: Gamut

    Also, every device capable of reproducing colour has a different gamut. The gamut of an RGB computer display is larger than the CMYK gamut of a DocuColor 2000 Series system, which in turn is larger than the CMYK gamut of an offset press.
  • Page 24: Process Colours

    For colour matching, a DE of 5 is acceptable, but anything greater than 5 is usually rejected as being an unsatisfactory match. Offset presses using process colours can generally match no more than 50% of Pantone colours. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 2 – 8...
  • Page 25: Designing Documents

    280 gsm and size can vary from 182 x 182 mm to 320 x 488 mm. The most versatile stock for the DocuColor 2000 Series is the Xerox Colotech+ uncoated range of stocks. They offer more forgiveness than coated stocks, which more readily display any print artifacts such as oil streaking.
  • Page 26: Image Considerations

    600 dpi (the print resolution of the DocuColor 2000 series) will only waste processing time and will not give you better results. The images on the opposite page will allow you to make your own judgement on image quality, with images ranging from 300 dpi down to 72 dpi.

    designing documents Specifying colours The DocuColor 2045 and 2060 print using process colours, ie, a mix of cyan, magenta, yellow and black. You have the ability to mix and blend variations of CMYK to create virtually limitless colour palettes. Refer to Appendix 3, CMYK colour charts, for examples of some of the combinations you can choose.

  • Page 41: Text

    designing documents Try restricting vignettes to smaller areas (less than 180 mm) rather than full page vignettes. Try adding “noise” to a raster vignette (eg, use the “Add Noise” filter in Photoshop). Create vignettes in Photoshop rather than Quark Xpress for better quality blends. Text With the DocuColor 2045 and 2060, you can use both PostScript and True Type fonts.

  • Page 43: Solid Blacks

    designing documents Solid blacks Large areas of solid black can often appear washed out, whether printed on an offset or digital press. Also, when overprinting text, underlying colours and patterns can show through. To avoid these issues, use a black that has been mixed with other colours for added punch.
  • Page 44: Image Mottle

    When overprint is specified, the shape prints over whatever colours have already been printed. This can result in a shift of colour due to overlapping ink or toner. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 3 - 20...
  • Page 45: File Formats

    PostScript files should be created using a print driver supplied by your print provider (a print driver specifically created for the DocuColor 2000 Series with Creo or Fiery RIP). PDF files should be created at print or press quality. If you try to use a screen quality PDF file, it will not contain enough resolution to print out at high quality on the DocuColor 2045 or 2060 and images will appear pixilated.
  • Page 46: Creating Pdfs

    • Save the PDF as high resolution (minimum downsampling of 300dpi) • Leave the file uncompressed • Embed the profile for your output provider’s DocuColor 2045 or 2060, if available.

  • Page 47: Dot Gain

    designing documents Dot gain Dot gain is the tendency for halftone dots to become larger and appear darker because of wet ink spreading when it comes into contact with paper. It is a real issue with offset presses and inkjet printers, but is not a problem with the DocuColor 2045 and 2060. Design elements to avoid The following are elements you should avoid in your designs for the DocuColor 2045 and 2060.
  • Page 48 DocuColor 2000 series design guide 3 - 24...
  • Page 49: Large Areas Of Solid Colour

    designing documents Large areas of solid colour Large solid areas of colour will always present a challenge for a press, whether it is offset or digital. The DocuColor 2045 and 2060 are capable of producing great results when it comes to flat tints, however, particular colours – like C100, M70 – can show up with banding in the solid area.
  • Page 50: Coated Stock And Large White Text On Heavy Background

    (white) text. By putting in a coloured text, even of a light shade, can help the fuser avoid the ghost image occurring. Avoid large text on dark background. Instead, lightly tint or colour the text. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 3 - 26...
  • Page 51: Selecting Paper Stock

    Selecting paper stock With any print job, it’s important to understand that paper quality has a direct relationship to print quality. No matter whether you’re printing offset, on a digital press, or at home on an inkjet, this is, and always will be, the case. Also, paper represents a significant proportion of the cost of a job, and can account for between one-third and one-half of the final cost of the printed work.
  • Page 52: Paper Influences On Print Quality

    Heavy stocks fold most smoothly parallel to the grain. Folds against the grain may cause paper to crack and appear lumpy and ragged. This is why printers prefer to fold jobs with the grain. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 5 - 2...
  • Page 53: Weight

    selecting paper stock Weight This is a measure of the weight of paper or stock, in grams per square metre (gsm), and is another important consideration in paper selection. Most office papers are around 80 or 90 gsm, and are normally used for correspondence. Heavier sheets, used for covers and business cards, are often thicker because they contain more fibres.
  • Page 54: Moisture And Offset

    If the paper texture is too rough, some particles may never come in contact with the paper, and parts of your image won’t print. The result will be uneven printing and loss of detail. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 5 - 4 Imaging drum on rough surface...
  • Page 55: Thick Paper Stocks

    selecting paper stock Thick paper stocks Image quality on recommended heavy weight stocks is often excellent, but cannot always be expected to match the image quality on 100 gsm Colotech+ paper. Degradation in image quality is more likely to occur as paper weight increases. The rough formation of heavy weight papers increases the possibility of mottle with some images, particularly those with uniform halftone areas (ie, flat tints).
  • Page 56: Optical Paper Qualities That Influence Image Quality

    When toner or ink is applied to brighter papers, images have higher contrast which improves printability and quality. Use brighter papers for best results with documents that contain complex graphics or photos. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 5 - 6...
  • Page 57: Reflectivity

    selecting paper stock Reflectivity When toner or ink is applied to a smooth surface, the resulting image is sharper because the image is reflected back in a straightforward direction. Images resulting from toner or ink applied to a rough surface are not as sharp because the image reflection is scattered in several directions.

  • Page 66: Paper Handling And Storage

    Reseal open reams with tape and keep in a moisture- proof container. Always run paper in accordance with directions on the wrapper that state "Print side first". This is important to minimise curl in the printing process. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 5 - 16...
  • Page 67: Wrap-Up

    selecting paper stock Wrap-up Paper has a direct relationship to print quality – the better the paper, the better the results. Specify paper that has been designed for digital printing. Select paper that has good formation. Use smooth or coated finishes for documents that have fine detail, shaded areas or halftone images.

  • Page 69: Binding And Finishing

    Binding and finishing Outside of the commercial print world, a vital part of a document’s lifecycle is often overlooked. Many people believe a document is completed once the pages leave the printer, disregarding the finishing process altogether. Yet advancements in binding and finishing processes are just as revolutionary as those found in the rest of the printing marketplace.

  • Page 73: Edition Binding

    binding and finishing Edition binding The conventional method of bookbinding, producing "hardback" books. Signatures are collated in sequence, endleaves pasted on the first and last signature, and then sewn together. The book is then trimmed on three edges, the spine (or backbone) roughed up and rounded (to lay flat when opened), and glue applied.
  • Page 74: Mechanical Binding

    Looseleaf bindings include screw and post bindings and ring binders. They allow for unlimited use of inserts and are ideal for manuals that undergo frequent updates. Pages can be inserted and removed easily. DocuColor 2000 series design guide 6 - 6...
  • Page 75: Finishing Touches

    binding and finishing Finishing touches Trimming Trimming is generally performed on a guillotine cutter after binding. Documents are placed in the gutter, with the bound side away from the knife. The knife is lined up to the desired edge of the document in position, and the knife cuts off the unnecessary margin between the edge of the document and the edge of the paper.

    APPENDIX 2: RGB colour charts The RGB colour space (or gamut) is much broader than the gamut of a process colour printer or press. Consequently, many colours available in the RGB colour space cannot be reproduced on a process colour device. A common area of discontent with customers is the issue of colour conversion from RGB to CMYK, ie, the colours they see on their display and the same colours as they appear on the printed page.
