I need to print a brochure on a
CMYK heidelberg CPCprinting machine.
The design house has asked me this: “We’ll need to know that/if you are using a specific profile for uncoated paper. Right now the pictures have
FOGRA29embedded for uncoated paper. Is that okay for you?”
I actually don’t know what this means… I don’t know what
FOGRA29is, all I know is my machine can print
Can someone please explain what it all means?
Your answer is “Yes, that will be fine.”
- FOGRA39 Coated
- FOGRA27 Coated (lightweight)
- FOGRA29 Uncoated
You’ll see that the CMYK working space for the document on uncoated stock is FOGRA29.
EDIT > Color Settings > Working Spaces CMYK: Uncoated FOGRA29.
Don’t alter the correct setting. Good Luck.
Note: The RIP will take care of any necessary conversions.
