Bodoni PressSign - print production audit

PressSIGN software for accurate colour on press. Measure and control the colour of the press.

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

Input any CMYK ICC profile and make the profile the press target.

pressSIGN works with the GretagMacbeth Eye-One and is available as a bundle with the Eye-One. 

pressSIGN version 2.5 measures the control bar across the whole press sheet with the Eye-One using a an extended ruler for sheet sizes for B1 or B2

Also new in pressSIGN 2.5 - Import and Export ICC profiles measuring the actual paper color being used. pressSIGN 2.5 generates a color bar based on the press standard selected.

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 will have consistently accurate colour

pressSIGN main features

  • predict the correct density to run the CMYK solids based on the press target  selected
  • export the data to adjust the plate curve to achieve the correct dot gain
  • built-in standards include ISO 12647-2, 12647-3, 12647-4, 12647-6, GRACol G7.
  • use any CMYK ICC profile as your press target.
  • measure the paper white and adjust ICC profile. Export the adjusted profile back to the pre-press workflow for use in proofing and program set-up.
  • measure wet or dry - pressSIGN compensates for the colour shift as the ink dries
  • measure the color bar across the whole width of the press sheet in seconds with the Eye-One (requires the Eye-One extended ruler)
  • generate a colour bar to match the press target you have selected
  • receive a detailed pdf report and/or label print output
  • traffic light scoring system with default settings fully user configurable
  • make individual readings anywhere on the press sheet for density, dot area, Lab, deltaE comparisons
  • create averaged dot gain curves from multiple readings. Allows two presses to be set up with the same plate queue
  • average readings from a job to get an overall score
  • generate your own standards based on previous jobs or typing in your own values.
