GMG ProofMedia Studio NewsPaper 76

Innovative media for high-end contract proofs

The special feature of GMG Newsprint papers is that the paper does not warp as badly as other papers available on the market. The neutral surface means that the paper fibers of newsprint can already be simulated in the proof. GMG Newsprint ProofPaper 57 should only be used in conjunction with matte black inks.

Optimum quality hardcopy inkjet proofs are only possible when all system components – software, printer, inks and media – interact smoothly and are well integrated. The printing substrate is essential in this context since it is largely responsible for the color space size and repeatability of proofs – very important for production reliability.

The surface properties of the innovative proofing media from GMG are optimized for inkjet printers. This supports optimum utilization of the printer's color space and is particularly noticeable when reproducing spot colors.

GMG offers printing substrates with optimally coordinated profiles for all proofing requirements: semimatte, matte and gloss papers for offset, gravure and photographic applications; special paper for newspaper applications, and transparent film for flexographic, label printing and packaging applications.

Target groups

• Agencies and photographers

• Repro houses and prepress businesses

• Printers and publishers

• All users of GMG proofing software 

Advantages of GMG proofing media

• All substrates are specified, manufactured and controlled to the highest quality requirements of contract proofing. GMG guarantees high proof-to-proof, roll-to-roll and batch-to-batch repeatability.

• GMG proof substrates offer high paper tint accuracy, excellent drying and high ink limit capabilities.

• GMG performs extensive tests to optimally coordinate printer calibrations with the respective printing substrate, inks and output devices, allowing remote proofing within printer families.

• Support of, and conformity to, all common standards, including ISO Offset, ISO Newspaper, PSR Gravure (ECI), GRACoL/SWOP, 3DAP, etc.

• Wide range of roll and sheet stock sizes to maximize fit and minimize waste.

• Minimal curling using 3" roll cores.
