Proof GmbH has again been certified by Fogra in September 2015, this time for the standards Fogra 51 (PSOCoated_v3), Fogra 52 (PSOuncoated_v3) and Fogra 39 (ISOcoatedv2).
The Proof GmbH has thus reaffirmed it’s quality by the strict criteria of Fogra. The tests Fogra conducted went far beyond the pure colorimetric readout of a media wedge. The special proofs for Fogra were evaluated among the following criteria:
Color accuracy of the Ugra / Fogra media wedge CMYK 3
Uniformity and homogeneity of the proofsProof GmbH has again been certified by Fogra in September 2015, this time for the standards Fogra 51 (PSOCoated_v3), Fogra 52 (PSOuncoated_v3) and Fogra 39 (ISOcoatedv2).
Color and gloss of the proofing papers used
Tonal range and tonality
Register and resolution
Status information on the proof
The color matching our proofs submitted for the test was confirmed by Fogra with date of September 24, 2015. The Proof GmbH is thus the world’s first company that has certification for the production of contract proofs on a Fogra 51 and Fogra 52.
The Proof GmbH has again successfully completed Fogra certification for the production of contract proofs – Contract Proof Creation.
The certification proofs have been produced both on EPSON 7900 and EPSON 9900 proof printers with SpectroProofer measuring instruments. Our two proofing papers were included in the certification process. Proof GmbH is therefore certified for the most frequently used Proofing Standards.
The requirements for the Fogra certification go far beyond simply measuring the media wedge. So the proofs are analyzed according to the following criteria:
Compliance with the tolerances of the Fogra Media Wedge CMYK 3
Determination of color accuracy [ISO 12642-2 test chart], the color gamut and gray balance
Gloss measurement in accordance with ISO 8254-1 [TAPPI]
Register and resolution
In parallel to the measurements, control measurements were carried out with a second X-Rite meter in order to eliminate measurement errors.
The conclusion of the Fogra: “The proofs of the company Proof GmbH are as color accurate and binding in the following combinations:
The ISO 12647-7 proofing standard was revised in November 2016 and the test criteria for FograCert contract proof creation were adapted. We have now incorporated these changed criteria into our proofing…
