Love the friendly banter between Cary and Frank here. FYI, there were actually at least 15 media suppliers exhibiting at the show including: Felix Schoeller, Actega, GPA, Mitsubishi, Mohawk, Sappi, Verso, Appvion, Avery, Convertible Solutions, Holliston, Inx, Magnum Magnetics, MGX and Relyco. They were spread out quite a bit so it wasn’t obvious.

There may be standards for color management, but since there is no standard CMM, we will never have 5 print device vendors that will print a single PDF file the same way. There, I said it. Never mind that minefield of ever shifting humidity, temperature and substrates that make even a single device print that same PDF file two time and have them be exactly the same ! We need a standard CMM.

Cary and Frank,
interesting comments. In the 1990's, Bill Lamparter did address the R&E Bindery Seminar, using overhead slides (remember those?) and made a prediction, that by 2015, digital printing will prevail. Looks like he hit the target right on. Yes, while at RIT, I published several articles, that when planning a job to be printed, one should always consider Finishing first. AP published my article "Always Think Backward" and it looks like that message has finally be recognized as being of utmost importance.

Frank: “This was a digital printing show when you get right down to it.”
Cary: “And also a finishing show.”
Frank: “Because that’s really how printers are gonna make their money. It doesn’t become a product until you finish it.”

I couldn't agree more! We had a fantastic response to our laminating systems at Graph Expo this year.

Designers: Are You Designing with "Considerate Color"?

Published: February 16, 2018

Cal Poly Professor Brian Lawler explains what designers should be thinking about to serve the needs of those who don't see color the same way most of us do. He recommends a process for using "considerate color" that allows the people with color vision defects to still see contrast and tonal difference in colors selected for graphic projects such as roadmaps and charts where color itself is a factor in understanding the content. He mentions specific tools designers can use to accomplish this.
