  • Xerox Phaser printers

    Is anyone familiar with Xerox' Phaser printers? We have a 7300 and a 7750DN in our studio and i am trying to calibrate the colors to closely match the PMS colors.

    I understand this can be a long process, but I am wondering if there is an easier way. i am a tree-hugger at heart and i hate wasting so much paper.

    Quick questions:
    1) are you sending the pantone info to the printer?
    2) What application are you printing from?
    2) Have you done the calibrate colours thing?
    4) Have you used non-xerox toners in the printer?

      4) have always used xerox brand toners on the printer.

      2) i have done the color calibration through the printer options. however, i can get one pms color but then the rest is a little off. our palette consists of 12+ colors. for example, i can get close to 648C, but then 645C, 644C, and so forth are off.

      2) mainly the application we're printing from is Indesign CS.

      1) by sending pantone info, do you mean printing cmyk? or using profiles?
      i am printing cmyk. i've tried different profiles such as NONE, SWOP and automatic. i can get somewhat close on the 7750DN on the "None" profile, but the 7300 prints funny (totally different) on "None" profile.

      Thanks!

        I like to add tax on top of the flat rate. It makes bookkeeping easier for me. When I report gross receipts to my state, they ask for the pre-tax amount and then they automatically calculate the tax (I...

        Yes and no. It goes against common wisdom, but when the text, graphics, symbols, whatever will be composed of halftone/screentint dots as opposed to a solid ink color, like black, there's no reason that...

        Well of course you have to do it all correctly. That goes for everything.
