Abstract

This is a feasibility study that evaluates what it takes to implement the G7 press calibration in a gravure package printing workflow. Since gravure printing is known for its repeatability, the study uses the characterization data from the initial press run (Run 1) and the G7 press adjustment curves to simulate the calibration press run (Run 2). The results show that G7 methodology can be adopted in gravure packaging printing, and gravure printers can continue to use their legacy non-standard inks and non-standard papers to facilitate "shared neutral" appearance between printed jobs.
