GMG Now Offers Full Range Of Substrates For Inkjet Proofing Systems

Press release from the issuing company

June 5, 2003 -- Tuebingen - GMG, a leading developer of professional color management solutions, announces today that it will considerably expand its offering with a variety of proofing substrates. A proofing system generating contract quality proofs imperatively requires three components: printing device, RIP and standardized consumables. Size of color space and repeatability specifically rely on the substrate. Quality control at GMG Weihing is one of the most stringent of the industry, understanding how dramatically even minute production tolerances might influence the proofing result. Specifically, the latest generation of pigmented inks that are finding more popularity are a challenge for any substrate, and demand only the highest quality materials. As an example of the breadth of the GMG product line, besides the well-known semi-matte papers which are primarily used to proof commercial print jobs, GMG now offers a specific 57 grs. matte paper, ideally suited for proofing newspaper jobs. Contrary to butt rolls of newsprint, the material offers exact repeatability and protection against ink bleeding and paper curling. At the same time, the neutral surface allows the reproduction of a simulated paper grain, a unique function that only the GMG ColorProof software offers. The substrate is also well suited for halftone proofs, offering a clear, sharp dot reproduction. Profiles are readily available for all GMG paper types, reproducing the most common US and European industry standards on popular printers, such as the Epson 7600 and HP 5500. Further information on the various types of GMG materials will soon be available at www.colorproof.de, Sample material is available through all authorized GMG dealers and distributors.
