Paper Abstract

Production and proofing substrates often differ in their white points. Substrate white points frequently differ between reference and sample, for example between proof and print, or between a target paper colour and an actual production paper. It is possible to generate characterization data for the printing process on the production side to achieve an accurate colorimetric match but in many cases it is not practical to generate this data empirically by printing samples and measuring them1. This approach however, does not account for any degree of adaptation between the differing substrate white points whereas its acceptability may depend on accounting for the change in paper colour such that appearance preservation of the original when printed on the production substrate is attained.
