Grand Rapids, MI – FineEye Color has added two new grades of proofing media to its Validation 250 Proofing lineup with Validation 250 Commercial and Validation 250 Publication. Combined with the GRACoL 250 Satin, these two new proofing papers feature white point and gamut capacity specifically engineered to meet the requirements for proofing to a SWOP grade 3 and SWOP grade 5 condition, utilizing a single ICC profile for all three grades. Proof makers can now produce SWOP 3 and SWOP 5 proofs without objectionable background tinting to simulate publication grades.
"Validation 250 Satin was the first proofing media with a white point engineered to meet GRACoL specifications. It has earned a leadership position in the industry with a unique combination of premium quality and affordable pricing. Customers recognize that the world class shade guarantee and coating quality deliver batch to batch and roll to roll consistency that results in accurate, predictable and repeatable proofing while saving 30% or more than on competitive grades." Graf added.
"Because all three of our proofing grades are manufactured with the same coating on the same base, and with specific shade and white points to meet industry standards, all three Validation grades utilize a single ICC profile, and do not require even an adjustment of white point." commented FineEye Chief Technology Officer, Mike DiCosola. "The benefit is a streamlined installation of these new grades without the costly and time consuming individual linearization and profiling drudgery that up to now has been required for multiple paper types."
Validation Media is converted at the FineEye state-of-the art facility in Grand Rapids, MI. Stringent quality control systems allow FineEye to offer a guaranteed shade, roll to roll and lot to lot consistency. All Validation Media users receive free phone support and access to the ICC Profile Libraries.
