GMG increases its substrate range with matte and gloss

Press release from the issuing company

Tuebingen (June 9th, 2008) – GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, has added new media to its portfolio of substrates for high-quality proofing and will present the new papers at Drupa 2008. The new GMG ProofPaper collection comprises GMG ProofPaper matte 140 and GMG ProofPaper gloss 250.
All GMG substrates are manufactured to more than meet the stringent demands on a color-accurate contract proof and have a high paper tint accuracy, particularly high ink limits and very good drying properties. GMG printer calibrations are optimally adapted to the respective substrate, the inks and the output device – the fundamental prerequisite for remote proofing within a family of printers.  GMG also guarantees that the properties of the substrates are consistent from batch to batch.
Not only do GMG substrates offer high proof repeatability, but they conform to the specifications of all common standards appropriate for the individual papers, such as ISO, PSR Gravure (ECI), SWOP, GRACoL and 3DAP. A wide variety of roll and sheet sizes are available, therefore minimizing waste and maximizing the print format. The 3” roll core guarantees optimum substrate flatness.
GMG ProofPaper matte 140
GMG ProofPaper matte 140 is a completely new paper and is suitable for a wide range of applications, with its bright white point with few optical brighteners. It is therefore an outstanding paper for producing high-quality matte proofs. It is suited to commercial printing as profiles are available for the ISO 29, 30 and 32 standards. It is a low cost option for gravure printers, as it offers a low-cost option for high-quality proofs for uncoated papers. In the flexo sector, it can be used effectively in conjunction with the structure simulation of GMG FlexoProof to simulate corrugated board or other cardboard products. 
GMG ProofPaper gloss 250
GMG ProofPaper gloss 250 is again a new paper, intended as a high-quality proofing paper for simulation on glossy materials, making it highly suitable for contract proofs. It is particularly suited to proofing high-quality glossy brochures as the visual impression is closer to the end product. Compared to other gloss papers, GMG ProofPaper gloss 250 has the advantage of its constant paper tint and the large amount of ink that can be applied to the gloss finish, therefore giving it a very large color space. Another advantage is its matting properties, which means that the point at which the color rendition changes from glossy to matte occurs much later.
