Is it possible to reuse the Kodak TIL?

I'm having a waste problem with my Thermal Image Layer sheets, as many of the jobs we receive take up only around 60% of the sheet. Most jobs are *urgent* so we cannot wait until a smaller job comes along to optimize the sheet usage. This has me wondering whether it would be possible to later use th...

Re: Industry standard spot color tolerance?

Hi Frank, thanks so much!!

We do have some customers who have defined specific tolerances, however other clients have asked us to go by ISO standards, which are still not quite clear to me!

Re: Industry standard spot color tolerance?

Gory, from your explanation I understand that each printed sample should be DE1.5 from our target, but since that 1.5 can move in any number of directions, if I measure print vs. print my DE could go up to 6. This makes sense to me. Frank, from your explanation I understand that my first ok print sh...

Re: Industry standard spot color tolerance?

Hi Gory,

Thanks so much for your response. Maybe I'm understanding incorrectly, but if you're always 1.5 DE2000 from your standard, how can you have a difference of 6 for different prints?

Would it be 1.5 for your starting point and then press variations can move you all the way to 6?

I was browsing the ISO 12647-6:2012 Part 6- Flexographic printing and I find conflicting information. One part says DE2000 of 6- DE2000 6.JPG But if I take a look at the T...

Problems with Kodak Maxtone?

Hi Everyone! I was wondering if anyone has seen this problem using Kodak Maxtone before? Every time we use Maxtone, we get similar results. When we talk to Kodak, they assure us this is an ink problem. When we talk to our ink supplier, they attribute it to anything and everything but inks... For thi...
