Session

Monday, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Manage PDF Brand Colors Like a Pro

Once we leave the world of CMYK, things often get seemingly complicated. Learn how brand owners and printers can accurately communicate all brand color related information without mailing ink drawdowns and how they can easily verify if proofs or production are within specs. We explore the advanced options of PDF/X-4 to not only hold channel names, but even include spectral reference, tint, overprint and in some cases even ink recipe data. We’ll see how this data is used in proofing, production and verification, then touch on the benefits of central brand color databases and future possibilities.
