"I'm not printing with VW any longer, I am printing in ONYX. VW cant handle the transparencies and color matching so we switched to a professional RIP.  "I have a Versacamm vs-540i running ONYX 12 and printing on 3M IJ35c-10 (I love…"

"In VW on the Printer Controls Tab - you can set the distance you want there in MM If you do it under the Edit tab in the Queues it will be for all jobs in one shot"

Need a larger gap when sheet cutting

I've recently made the switch to ONYX 12 and I've noticed the media is not advancing forward when pressing sheet cut as when I was printing in VW. There was a noticeable difference of about 1" at the end of my prints. My workaround is advancing the media forward before sheet cutting. This extra space at the end of the prints are for taping the sheets of laminate before my production guys send this through our laminator. We print and laminate MOST of our vinyl.Is there a function that I'm not…See More

"I've been there, it's frustrating but I've also noticed patterns with the contour cut issues.  Make sure you rasterize all of the special effects and raster linked files in your artwork (select the object, go to object menu and…"

"Thank you very much Steven, you have explained and educated me on the part of our printer/rip that I needed clarification on for a while. I appreciate that you detailed the RGB color gamut for the roland printers but didn't just stop there.…"

"Bottom line..........the only useful applications I've ever found to use a limited CMYK palette is for offset printing ( ie. business cards, brochures, etc)  I'm guessing that's why you use it and are most comfortable…"

"That wasn't my question. I understand that RGB and CMYK print differently and I've seen the differences. The point I am trying to make is that if a color is created with an RGB color palette and is converted to CMYK it would be very…"

irving donaldson replied to Marilee's discussion Embedded ICC profile vs. simulation target profile
"Understand that the RIP converts the other palettes to CMYK. The three color options I gave you are larger than CMYK and the Roland ink set can reach higher than CMYK and less than them. With your background it will be hard to accept so the best…"

Marilee replied to Marilee's discussion Embedded ICC profile vs. simulation target profile
"Interesting. I have experience in wide format printing and to color match anything I find the CMYK palette to be most efficient. Perhaps it's because I have the most experience in that color space. I find it counter productive to use RGB…"

Embedded ICC profile vs. simulation target profile

I'm wondering if the embedded target profiles in the files I'm printing are being managed properly.I had a "roland tech" from a local shop come by and set up the color management system within Versaworks. I completely overlooked the fact that "Japan Standard.icc" was selected for the simulation target profile in the color management properties tab. I don't know if it's too late to go back and correct it to the proper profile which should always be "USWEBcoatedSWOP". Our business occasionally…See More
