 pressSIGN  -  Control Colour on Press!

Product Overview

pressSIGN software for accurate colour. Measure and control the colour on your press.

pressSIGN makes it easy to run to all the international printing standards - ISO 12647-2, ISO 12647-3, GRACol G7, SWOP.

pressSIGN - Five easy steps to accurate colour
• add the pressSIGN control strip to one of your jobs
• read the control strip with your Eye-One and adjust the densities as recommended by pressSIGN
• read the control strip when dry and update the dry back calculations
• adjust the plate curve as recommended by pressSIGN
• run the next job with the pressSIGN settings and you'll have consistently accurate colour

pressSIGN compensates for dry-back
Use pressSIGN both to evaluate the press sheets and adjust the press as it's running. Because pressSIGN compensates for colour shift that can take place as the ink dries you can use it to adjust the press-on-the-fly. Adjust the densities as suggested by pressSIGN and you'll find that the colours will dry back to hit the ISO targets. Each control strip reading takes only a few seconds and you have a objective measure of the colour, grey balance, trapping and overprint.

pressSIGN step by step guide to accurate printing
pressSIGN takes you quickly and easily to international printing standards. pressSIGN's five easy steps reduces make-ready times and improves your colour. pressSIGN's tools allow you to test during the run and to make any density adjustments knowing any colour shift during ink drying will be compensated for.

pressSIGN both reads the density and suggests the correct density adjustment.

Setting the right dot gain curve can be difficult. pressSIGN provides you with the tools to set the correct dot gain curve quickly and easily. Read the sheet and within seconds you'll have the plate adjustment curve to add to your plate or imagesetter. Import this data directly into the most popular RIPs.

Complete set of measurements in seconds
pressSIGN works in conjunction with the GretagMacbeth Eye-One spectrophotometer and reads the pressSIGN control strip in seconds. Read the whole control strip with one swipe and you'll receive an instant report on all aspects of the press sheet. The speed with which pressSIGN operates allows you to monitor your press run constantly. You can therefore ensure the complete run conforms to the ISO, GRACol or SWOP standard.

Choose the standard that suits your press

Select the tolerances & scoring system
Scoring System

pressSIGN allows you to select different international printing standards according to the type of press you are running, the type of paper, the appropriate dot gain curve and your customers needs. You can also select the default tolerances or adjust the tolerances to suit. You can add tolerances for grey balance, overprint and trapping.
