Wasn't sure if this was a hardware or software subject so I just went for the General forum... Anyway, I'm looking to learn as much as usefully possible about pre-press colour management and I would be grateful if anyone has any tips, tricks, useful links, book recommendations etc. Our promotions/publications team has been increasingly moving towards a lot more CMYK stuff and away from 2-colour work and after a few recent surprises back from press, we're compelled to do something about it. Although we have fab new G5s with Panther, Adobe CS, Quark 6.5, the works + an acceptable printer (HP DesignJet 20ps) with an external RIP, I'm unable to make use of the tools at our disposal because of ignorance about the subject. We're also increasingly moving to a PDF workflow... It's surprising to me how few designers here in London bother with profiles at all. Many of our printers too... but not all, and there's the point. We spend about £170,000 (over US$300,000) per year on print so we're determined to get this right and force the printers who want our business to fall in line... Anyway, I'm getting off the track. Any words of wisdom are as usual much appreciated.
