As usual, there’s a lot going on right now. In addition to a huge prepress project with tight deadlines, I’ve been devoting much of my time to my other blog, Life In Lo-Fi.com. Basically, I’m moving a lot of the iPhone camera-related articles over there and focusing on design and type musings here.
The Epson 4880 proofer performed excellently for the previous job. We got great results and press check was a breeze. We were using Publication base stock and a custom profile provided by the printer. Results were close enough that the pressman had to do few moves on press day. Whew!
Our current big job will run three times as many proofs though the machine and will be on Commercial base proofing stock this time. The Commercial base is visibly brighter than the Publication base. I’ll be running to standard SWOP 2 densities throughout the project. After this job ends is when you get the full review of the 4880. Amazing machine so far!
That’s all I’ve got for now! Thanks for stopping in and I hpe to see you soon!
