I recently made a profile for Howard Linen by Neenah. I profiled it through a Creo Spire workflow to a Xerox 6060. Even though the paper is meant for double sided printing the fibers of the paper are different on both sides. This causes the toner to lay down differently on each side. This affects color. A couple of notes in case you are not acostomed to profiling through Creo. You have to build a new calibration for your media. then when you send a CMYK profiling testchart through the RIP make sure you send it through a “Direct” pathway. This will bypass any color management – even though there is a choice for ICC profile. Once the profile is built you have to import it back into the RIP. This is not an issue if you have a .icc extension. I taught a course for X-Rite and Creo about a year and half ago all about this and wonder how manyare actually building profiles. John Gilbert would know.
