Color Ready! Day 4

Get Color Ready!

In a perfect world, the color you print for your customers is always accurate, and they're always completely delighted with the final product. In reality, we know that this isn't always the case. Getting control over color, setting the right expectations, and producing repeatable, predictable color results is a challenge. The final printed product is influenced by many factors--from perception to communication to production variables and more!

The PRINTING United Alliance Color Ready! event will give anyone involved in the color printing supply chain a convenient, powerful, and practical learning experience. You'll get valuable and actionable ideas and techniques that will help you get better control over the color you print.

Up your color knowledge--get Color Ready!

Getting the Right Color in PDFs

Birgit Plautz, Manager of Technical Services, GMG Americas

When it comes to color, how perfect are the PDFs you're creating for print? Outstanding color reproduction starts with great images and solid native files--but when you choose one wrong setting when creating the PDF, your outstanding color will be ruined. In this session, learn all about Adobe CC PDF color settings, what each does, and how they can change color reproduction and accuracy.

What you'll learn:

  • Why outstanding color begins with native files
  • Adobe CC "canned" PDF presets and how they impact color
  • PDF standards, color settings, what each setting is, and what it does
  • Solid starting points for PDF settings for digital and offset printing
