Re: Convering from RGB to CMYK

In my situation, yes. I send RGB files to the printer, and if they don't print to my satisfaction, I demand reprints.

If I send CMYK files, I'm seen to be taking the conversion into my own hands, and therefore I'm responsible for the quality. I certainly don't need that, because at any time the printer could have changed their ink or media supplier, or some other factor out of my control.

Re: Convering from RGB to CMYK

The best CMYK profile imo is GracolG7. I find that it helps retain more vibrant colors and gives just a little kick of contrast to the image. I soft-proof in Photoshop then send an RGB file to RIP software and have it simulate the CMYK profile...for both proofing and personal printing.
