Printing HP Bar code Black

#1 CDM Christian a year ago

Is it possible to print the deep black colour found in the HP barcode? This seems to be the richest and deepest version of black my printer produces. I have not been able to print this colour. The black used in the print attached is C: 60 M: 40 Y:40 K:100

#1 Hi Christian

For these color management problems, we must take into account the following parameters.

-Control which ICC profiles are being applied to the raster. -Check the color calibration factors at the Rip software.

In your case , it seems that the ink levels are not sufficient to achieve the "deep black" you are looking for.

We recommend increasing the ink levels of the C, M and Y inks by at least 70%.

To avoid IQ problems related by the increased ink we recommend you to increase the number of passes of your job.

I hope had helps with your issue.

Best regards
