Wink Matchprint needs colorbars(color pallet/chart)?


I am making matchprint for magazine client in Japan.

I am going to print at the print lab so I will use their color profile when i will print matchprint....
It's really classic way and I can just try to match what i see in their screen and my screen and print as a match-guide for them.

I just remembered I added color bar on the side of image when i worked at photo studio and i wonder if i need it (and I dont have the color bar file with me). if so, where i can get the color chart file. And If I will get the color bar with some CMYK profile, can we use it for printing at the lab's profile?

Thank you!

Hi Pippo, I've been watching this thread with interest, to see if somebody could help you.

I don't have any experience with matchprint, and in truth I don't really understand your question, but I think it's probably a good idea to add a colour bar if you can.

However, I don't think a CMYK colour bar is going to help.
