Successful Training Event at Kelley Imaging
Huge Training Event Successful!
Wow! We had a great session at Kelley Imaging in Seattle and Portland last week! Event the Kelley technicians attended our live Design and Color management Training seminar. It was so good even I learned something!
Here’s what happened.
Adobe InDesign & FlexiSIGN
There was a user of FlexiSIGN that create artwork using InDesign and then saves and sends the art to Production Manager for RIP and print. In some places, it looked like the black ink was bleeding into the red ink of the design. Other than that, she said the image colors were perfect! So what gives?
After a little investigating, I found out that InDesign assigns process black as an OVERPRINT, so when imported into production manager of Flexi, it assigns the ink to overprint other colors, thus the black process color was printing on top of the red ink below and thus bleeding. Turning off this preference in InDesign solved the issue. It can also be turned off or ignored in Production manager.
Anyway, an easy fix and now the customer is a happy camper.
