How do I proof work when utilizing the PANTONE EXTENDED GAMUT Coated Guide?
If you are utilizing PANTONE COLOR MANAGER to update your Adobe color books, your PANTONE EXTENDED GAMUT Coated Guide colors will reproduce adequately on a well-maintained inkjet proofer. The proofing device will utilize the RGB values in your non-separated “spot color” and reproduce the color to the best of its ability. The PANTONE EXTENDED GAMUT Coated Guide should be used to check the accuracy of your printed proof. If more accuracy is needed, you may want to consult with a color management professional.
After color separation, printers and color separators should use your press specific proofing profile to reproduce a color accurate proof. There are many proofing RIPS that specialize in the PANTONE EXTENDED GAMUT Process. Please contact your preferred RIP manufacturer to check compatibility of your RIP and proofer.
