Colour management

In order to achieve a colour-optimised print result, we ask you to generate your data and proofs according to the ICC profiles described below.
For an exact process control you should provide your colour binding originals with a Ugra/Fogra media wedge.
With regard to "non-periodic screening" (FM), no special proof adjustment (Fogra 43 and 44) should be made at your end, as the compensation of the increased dot gain is done by us.

We are at your disposal for non-categorisable print run papers (e.g. volume paper) and general questions.
