How to Use the Chart
In the printing process, the relationship between the substrate (paper), LPI (lines per inch), SID (solid ink density), TAC (total
area coverage), gray balance and NPCD (neutral print density curves) combine to affect the quality of the printed output. The
GRACoL 2007 Print Characterization Chart specifies values and tolerances for input variables and output goals for commercial
printing for a #1 or #2 sheet. The chart includes variables for both a premium coated paper and premium text and cover
substrate. The goal of the chart is to facilitate communication and expectations between the print buyer, creative,
premedia/prepress service provider and the printer. Using this chart you can select a set of input variables and have a clear
expectation of the output parameters that meet GRACoL quality. This new chart differs significantly from the chart published
with previous GRACoL editions. These differences reflect the important new G7 variables that help to maintain a constant
visual appearance from proof to press and from press to press. For example gray balance is defined at 50% C, while neutral
print density is defined for 25%, 50% and 75% CMY gray patches, and K 25, K50 and K 75%. Maintaining gray balance and
gray density at the midtones are key G7 metrics. Gray Balance is specified in CIE a*b* at 50,40,40 CMY with target a* equal
to paper a*/2 and target b* equal to paper b*/2, with a tolerance of ±0.5 a* for proofs and ±1.0 a* on press, and ±1.0 b* for
proofs and ± 2.0 b* on press. The chart also provides Paper CIELab Values, and CIELab values for the primary Ink solids.
Tolerances & Variation
Variation is part of the printing process. The GRACoL 2007 Print Characterization Chart specifies
tolerances. Even using the G7 Proof-to-Print Process, variances should be expected. Some printers may suggest that their
printing parameters differ from those listed here. For example a printer may suggest using a 200-line screen or vary their ink
densities. While this may enhance print properties
such as resolution, there can be a penalty if the same allowances are not made in proofing and other areas such as file
preparation. Print buyers need to understand that printers offering to print “better” than a specification such as GRACoL 2007
or SWOP 2007 may well be able to do so, but files and proofs generated by that printer may not be interchangeable with
another printer, and vice-versa, without careful color management.
Some Important Definitions in Quality Control
Several definitions will help you understand and use the GRACoL 2007 Characterization Chart. These are:
CIE L*a*b* (CIELAB): A 3-D color space mathematically derived from CIE xyz chromaticity coordinates resulting in greater
perceptual uniformity. L* = neutral light-dark axis, a* = red/green axis and b*= blue/yellow axis.
CMYK: Four-color process printing uses CMYK― that is Cyan (also called process blue), Magenta (process red), Yellow
(process yellow) and black inks to create all colors.
lpi: Lines per inch or Line Screen (LS) is the numberof lines of dots per linear inch in a halftone screen.
The lower the line screen number (fewer dots in an inch), the larger and more widely spaced the dots which produces less dot
gain. Higher line screen rulings (more dots) can contain more image information and produce fi ner detail if they are used on a
paper stock of high enough quality. Higher line screens produce more dot gain.
NPDC: Neutral Print Density Curve is the relationship between the measured neutral density and original halftone percentages
on a gray scale.
Solid Ink Lab Values: Color information that is used to specifi cally map a color gamut. These measurements a extremely
useful for ink manufacturers and color management experts.
SID: Solid Ink Density is a numerical measure of how much complementary (major filter) light is absorbed by a solid patch in
a color control bar as measured and reported by a reflection densitometer measured dry with instrument calibrated to Status
TAC: Total area coverage defines in percentage terms the total amounts of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black
in the darkest area of the printed image. Theoretically, the blackest area would benefit from being produced
with maximum ink amounts totaling 400%. However, in four-color process printing, that would cause
problems in production press operation. Total area cove rage should be checked in the heaviest (darkest)
area of the film or electronic fi le and read in the same spot on each color. Look for the appropriate TAC for
each print condition in the color preferences setup for the color separation software.

GRACoL® 7 Specification for
Commercial Printing on a #1 Coated Sheet
In an ideal world, each commercial sheetfed offset printing job should exceed the customer’s expectations. The
printer should be able to match the vision of the creative in the finished product on press. But in the real
world, a multitude of creative, premedia, prepress and printing variables often prevent printers from meeting
the customer’s expectations. The good news is that with this latest version of GRACoL, we have come a long
way toward fulfilling the vision. GRACoL 2007 signals a revolution in printing because for the first time a
specification has been designed to provide printers with the ability to visually match output from proof to press
and even from press to press. GRACoL leverages new technologies such as spectrophotometry and CTP, as well
as taking a lesson from photographers about how color is perceived by the human eye to develop metrics and
process controls that assure better visual likeness on press regardless of mechanical variables like dot shape
or screen ruling. Previously GRACoL and other printing specifications have been based on measuring and
controlling TVI/dot gain for each printed color. But GRACoL 2007 has broken from this tradition by setting
printing aims based on colorimetric data for gray balance and a standardized “Neutral Print Density Curve”
(NPDC), rather than on traditional TVI aims for each ink. This new philosophy allows a careful user to achieve
a closer visual match from device to device, while maintaining the same overall “appearance” of traditional
printing. G7, the new process control method that was developed by the GRACoL Committee with the
assistance of the Print Properties
Working Group is documented in the following section of this publication.
Here we represent the new GRACoL 2007 Specifications embodied in the
new Characterization Data Set in the form of the Print Characterization Chart.

About Offset printing inks - how they are formulated
Inks for sheetfed as well as inks for heatset web offset printing are structured lithographic paste inks and
generally consist of a varnish, pigment and extender, mineral oil distillate, vegetable oil and additives.
The varnish is the binding agent and consists of hard resins, chemically modified wood resin and synthetic hydrocarbon resin,
soft alkyd resin and a mix of vegetable oil and mineral oil distillates. The mix is cooked to dissolve and disperse the hard resin,
thus forming a homogeneous varnish.
The colorants in the inks are synthetic organic pigments, not to be confused with natural pigment or with dyes. For black ink,
carbon black is used as the pigment. The amount of pigment and extenders (chalk/clay) depends on the desired colour and
structure of the ink.
Mineral oil distillate and vegetable oil
Sheetfed inks are designed for drying by oxidation (skinning). Certain vegetable oils harden under the influence of oxygen
from the surrounding air. The most commonly used type is linseed oil. A dryer catalyst accelerates the drying process.
For the heatset printing process it is necessary to use a diluent that can be evaporated in a hot air dryer. For this reason, a
fraction or distillate of mineral oil with a boiling range of 240–290 °C is used. The function of this diluent is to act as a “carrier”
for the resins and pigments and to allow the final formation of an ink film of about 1 micron thickness on paper.
Certain additives are used for the pigment grinding process or to provide specific ink properties which have an effect on the
lithographic behaviour of the ink on press. Waxes are used to improve the rub resistance and slip properties of the dried ink
In sheetfed inks certain agents are used to create an appropriate balance between the drying
properties of the printed ink film and the skinning tendency of the ink surface in an open can or ink duct.

Why measurements on printing plates ?
Today in the age of Computer-to-Plate it is obvious:
Without quality control in pre-press, there is no guarantee for quality in print.
Thus the measurement of the right dot transfer on offset printing plates is a key segment of comprehensive
process control in the printing industry.
However, measurement is only useful if the appropriate measurement technology is applied. Some years ago
using densitometers on printing plates was common practice. But densitometers are designed for measuring
on printed papers leading to limits when reading on plates. At present, plate measurement devices based on
microscopic image capture and processing are the established standard.
TECHKON SpectroPlate unifies all advantages of this modern measurement technology in a compact, hand-held
How does SpectroPlate work ?
The measurement accuracy of a plate-measuring device is determined by the quality of the optical system and
the performance of the image processing algorithms. SpectroPlate meets the highest standards in this respect.
The sample is illuminated uniformly with spectral broadband light. The microscopic image is captured by a
precision optical lens system and a high resolution CMOS color matrix sensor with high dynamic range.
The processing of the detailed color image is performed by a powerful graphic signal processor and
sophisticated imaging algorithms. All relevant quality parameters for correctly manufactured printing plates are
shown on the LCD display.
Versatile in use
Thanks to the excellent image capture quality and the ingenious graphic calculations, SpectroPlate can read
precisely any screen size and screen technology: FM, AM or Hybrid screen. The spectrally white illumination
and dynamic color evaluation permits reading all kinds of plate types and coated surfaces.
But it is not only plate reading where SpectroPlate shows its strengths. The multifunctional device handles
dot measurement on film as well as on printed paper in CMYK-print excellently.
SpectroPlate lets you see things normally hidden to the human eye. It shows the raster dots on a film or a
printing plate in large magnification on the device display or optionally on a computer screen. It lets you
visually judge printing plates and discover any soiling or exposure errors now that the structure of the raster
dots is visible.
A specific strength is the image transfer of uncompressed high-resolution files to the PC where they can be
stored, edited or sent over the internet. Geometric sizes of dots or lines can be retrieved in micrometer-or
The supplied Windows software connects the device to a PC. Measured values and transfer curves are
displayed and stored. The display of comparisons to target values, the data export to Microsoft Excel™
and the compatibility to RIP-applications are additionally useful functions of SpectroConnect. An exceptional
feature is the enlarged view of the microscopic images.
Versions and functions
SpectroPlate is available in three different types of performance packages:
The entry-level model Start is for dot percentage measurements on all popular types of printing
plates, film and CMYK print.
The Expert-version additionally features the recording of complete transfer curves and the possibility to
analyze geometric objects within the device.
The All-Visionmodel features supplementary the measurement of processless, low-contrast printing plates.
