Cannon Valley Printing Reduces Costs, Increases Image Quality with Kodak’s Ink Optimizing Service for Newspapers

Cannon Valley Printing, a newspaper printer in Minnesota, now lowers ink consumption—and produces sharper images without any changes to its workflow—using KODAK’s Ink Optimizing Service. The new service decreases ink consumption, reduces waste and makeready time, enhances reproduction fidelity, and improves stability on press.

With the KODAK Ink Optimizing Service, Kodak provides customers with an ICC DeviceLink profile that gets plugged into the KODAK PRINERGY EVO Workflow. Based on the ICC DeviceLink profile, separated image files go through a gray component removal (GCR) process that reduces ink usage by replacing CMY inks with less expensive black ink, while limiting the Total Area Coverage (TAC) to a predefined level.
