Colour Management

In order to achieve a printing result with optimal colours, we would ask you to generate your data and proofs according to the ICC profile described below. To ensure precise process control, your true-colour proofs should have a Ugra/Fogra media wedge.

With regard to "non-periodic screening" (FM) you should not undertake any special proof adaptation (Fogra 43 and 44), as we do the increased dot-gain compensation. In the case of production paper (for example, volume paper) which cannot be categorised, and for general queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
