  • Page 27: About Color Printing

    Overview Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l About color printing Traditional offset printing requires time, people, materials, and many steps to produce quality color output. Digital technology is changing the way the printing industry works.
  • Page 28: Image Quality

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Image quality Quality starts with the original 2- 2 When creating a document with color images, you first need to understand the capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses of the software you are using.
  • Page 29: How Input Determines Output

    How input determines output Scanners Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l Successful reproduction of color images depends on a number of factors, starting with the differences in how the various technologies that affect the image translate and display the color.
  • Page 30: Image Key

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Image key 2- 4 Some scanners, especially low-end desktop models, tend to compress the tonal range of an image and increase the contrast or difference between light and dark areas. If the contrast of your original is too high or too low, detail could be lost when it is reproduced.
  • Page 31: Grain/image Size

    Grain/image size Getting the color you expect Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l The size of an original scanned image is also important to the clarity of the output image. If an image is enlarged too much, the grain of the image may become obvious, detracting from the image quality.
  • Page 32 A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Additive color Subtractive color Media Color servers 2- 6 Computer monitors work with energized phosphors that glow red, green, or blue on the face of a picture tube. If accurate color reproduction is important to you, your monitor should be calibrated on a regular basis.
  • Page 33: Color Gamut

    The photograph gamut is much larger than that of an RGB monitor. The RGB monitor gamut is larger than the CMYK gamut of a Xerox DocuColor system press. The CMYK gamut of offset printing is significantly less than that of a Xerox DocuColor system.
  • Page 34: Color Models

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Color models 2- 8 Video technology (computer monitors, scanners, and television screens) sees color as transparent light and uses an RGB model to display colors. To display color appropriately on video technology, captured images are broken down into pixels (picture elements) that are projected as rays of red, green, and blue light.
  • Page 35: Adding And Replacing Gray To Improve Color

    Adding and replacing gray to improve color No GCR Light GCR Medium GCR Maximum GCR Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l There are limitations to achieving the exact colors when converting from RGB (for video display) to CMY (for print).
  • Page 36: Color Management

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Color management Halftone dots and screen angles Halftone screens 2- 1 0 Since the color on a screen differs from the color produced by the press, it is necessary to have a Color Management System (CMS).
  • Page 37: Halftone Dots

    Xerox media have been designed with evenly distributed fibers in its structure to yield crisp and mottle-free prints. Paper quality can vary from one side to another. Good quality paper reduces these differences.
  • Page 38: Electronic Digital File

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Electronic digital file Calibration 2- 1 2 Calibration is essential to insuring good color quality. The purpose of calibration is to measure how the digital press is printing the requested colors and to then make any corrections that are required.
  • Page 39: Digital Image Manipulation

    Digital image manipulation Sizing Sharpening Color cast Important additional tips Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l Although image reproduction can be a complex process, one of the primary advantages of capturing an image digitally is that it can be manipulated until you have achieved the desired output.
  • Page 40: Output Considerations

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Output considerations Mottle Mottle No mottle Registration Registered 2- 1 4 Mottling is uneven spotty toner coverage that occurs when printing large, solid areas of flat color. Paper choice can be critical in avoiding this problem.
  • Page 41: Trapping

    Trapping No Trap Trap Halo Halo No Halo Opacity Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l Trapping compensates for misregistration by slightly overprinting adjacent colors. Haloes are light areas around an object that occur when printing a darker color dry ink/toner on a lighter color dry ink/toner background.
  • Page 42: Anti-aliasing

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Anti-aliasing Anti-aliased Anti-aliased Knockout Knockout Overprint Overprint 2- 1 6 Anti-aliasing is a graphics software feature that eliminates or softens the jaggedness of low resolution curved edges. Knockout prints a shape or object by removing (knocking out) all underlying colors.
  • Page 43: Duplex Settings

    Duplex settings File formats Resolution Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l To ensure that the image orientation is correct on both sides of the page, the correct duplex setting must be indicated in the print driver window.
  • Page 44: Color Server

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Color server 2- 1 8 Color servers are connected to your network and drive the color output devices (digital color presses/printers). Each time an image is sent to a printer, the color server connected to the printer converts, or rasterizes, the data in the file into dots which can be printed by the target output device.
  • Page 45: Finishing

    Finishing Folding techniques Parallel fold Right angle fold Accordion fold Gate fold Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l There are two types of finishing: the finishing that the digital press can do and the preparation for finishing other than what the digital press can perform.
  • Page 46: Binding Preparation

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Binding preparation Nested signature and binders creep Gathered signature Bottling 2- 2 0 The effects of binders creep are most obvious when thick paper is folded or multiple signatures are nested with each other. After trimming, the innermost signatures will have a smaller page size than the outermost.
  • Page 47: Binding Methods

    Binding methods Saddle stitching Perfect binding Mechanical binding Looseleaf Binding Do c u Co lo r 52 5 2 O pe r a to r Ma n ua l Saddle Stitching is accomplished using a stapler or a high-speed binding machine that inserts and bends thin wire through the spine of a document.
  • Page 48: Final Finishing Touches

    A bo u t c ol o r p r i nt i ng Final finishing touches Die cutting Lamination Varnish Embossing 2- 2 2 In die cutting, shapes are cut out of a page with sharp knives. It is most often used to create attention-getting documents, or for packaging with unique shapes, like video box covers.
