  1. 3. Technical Definitions
  2. 4. Print
  3. 5. What is a digital cromalin and what is it used for? Cromalin provides the best colour matching for printers as it is calibrated to show CMYK colours, (exactly as they should appear when printing with inks) It is an industry standard proof which the printer actually uses while printing the job on press to ensure the printed job is consistent and 100% accurate to the proof colour wise.  
  4. 6.   What is a press proof and what is it used for? Colours for printing on newsprint need a lot more tweaking than those used on standard paper as the newsprint soaks more ink and naturally prints much darker. We run press proofs of every campaign to ensure ; 1. The image is visible - 80% of images need to be colour amended after a newsprint proof is run 2. that all the copy is legible as the ink will spread when printed on newsprint. Each newspaper has individual profiles (some print darker and some print lighter  eg The Irish Times prints using much less ink than most newspapers so all the ads that appear in this  publication are printed much lighter than say in the Sunday World.) Newsprint proofs are vital to ensure we achieve the best colour balance across all publications.
