Hello, We have an HP 3000 Latex & Hp 300 Latex. My question is What Colour Setting do you Recommend
Setting up a custom working space or using a pre-set one like Europe Prepress 3?

Hi @Shane Wilson,

The topic raised is a very wide and complex one, as the color performance on the printed jobs may vary considerably depending on the profile used. It will also depend on the results you want to achieve.

The recommendations I can suggest are as follows:

  • Using CMYK color profile as default working space

  • The most common output profile in the printing industry is the Coated Fogra39, especially in Europe Community. In Japan, to increase the saturation and vibrance of some specific colors, is common to use Japan Color 2001 Coated or Europe Prepess 3 profiles. You could use it as the default working space.

  • In RIP print production software, use always All ICC profiles On profile on the print settings. It will provide more color uniformity, especially in the color ramps and gradations.

  • Make sure that your printing file does not contain any Pantone profiles. It is important to identify if your files contain any embedded profiles.

These are the main recommendations. I suggest checking on the result that best suits your needs in order to achieve the most satisfactory results according to your expectations.

I hope this helps.

Your needs and the final product you hope to create will dictate the optimal colour options to use. I may, however, suggest some default Adobe Colour settings as a starting point.

Pre-Set Color Profiles : Adobe supplies standard colour profiles that are widely adopted by a variety of businesses. In the printing industry, regionally specific profiles such as "Europe Prepress 3" and "US Prepress" are standard fare. These default profiles include a set of parameters designed to guarantee faithful colour reproduction across a wide range of devices and printing methods. Using a pre-set colour profile, such as Europe Prepress 3, can be helpful if your end goal is print output.

Custom Working Spaces : You can tailor the hues and saturation of your personal workspace to suit your needs. Knowing the exact colour capabilities of the output devices you're aiming for will allow you to design a workspace that's perfect for them. This is especially helpful if your printing environment is unique or if you need to get a custom colour that isn't supported by the standard profiles.

Collaboration and Consistency : It is crucial to maintain colour accuracy while working with others or distributing your work to several audiences. In such situations, it is typically advised to make use of industry-wide colour profiles or standards. This ensures that your work will look the same on all of your devices and in all of your programmes, with as few colour shifts as possible.

Monitor Calibration : Calibration and profiling your display on a regular basis is essential regardless of the colour settings you choose. With proper display calibration, the colours you see on screen will always be true to life. This is a crucial stage for ensuring consistent colour control throughout your entire process.
