Use MagicPress and MagicPrepress N-CLR options for specifying, recording, communicating and matching any 1 to 10 colors print standard

With MagicPress and MagicPrepress N-CLR options, a basic i1Pro, i1Pro 2 or i1Pro 3 costing less than 1000 US$ replaces quite advantageously the best and most expensive proprietary pressroom spectrophotometers, for all your color printing applications including CMYK with spot colors and/or N-Colors printing with or without a CMYK base.

As for basic CMYK printing, there is no standard print density for special inks: your ideal spot colors or special primary inks densities are the ones allowing best possible visual match with your target solid colors. They depend A LOT on the ink brand, ink reference, ink batch and the paper reference and batches you are using!

For any special N-CLR print process with or without a CMYK base, MagicPress and MagicPrepress application allows very fast, easy, and accurate computing of each ink optimal print density, plus computing or updating the appropriate printing form correction curve, in order to match your target colors, not only on solid colors, but also on all N-colors screened tones.

MagicPrepress N-CLR option allows you creating your own N-Colors print standards with an unlimited number of primary inks and spot colors. Every private N-Colors print standard can be saved with all printing specifications and parameters. Each computed correction curves set for matching a same standard on each of your printing presses can be saved as well.

The computed recommended inks corrections are specified in terms of density, and in terms of ink thickness or pigment concentration, which is necessary for gravure printing. (And sometimes quite useful for offset, flexographic, and inkjet printing as well.)

MagicPrepress have been widely validated for high-end N-Color printing packaging applications, including
7 Colors printing (CMYK + Orange + Green + Violet), using wet offset, UV offset, gravure, and flexographic print technologies.

You should install MagicPress with N-CLR option on each printing press for replacing obsolete pressroom spectrophotometers, in order to check your special process inks and spot colors optimal densities and trapping colors at each press setting.

Do not stay in the dark: MagicPress and MagicPrepress bring the best solutions to all your prepress and press-room quality issues, and with using an inexpensive basic Eye-One Pro 1, 2, or 3 spectrophotometer, or else 45/0° modern scanning spectrophotometer.
