Printing Reds on HP Latex 365 thru Flexi

HP Latex 300 Series

#1 art5882 6 months ago


What's the best way to print a true red on our new Latex 365? We are using Flexi 12, and all firmware is up to date. We have done all the calibrations but our reds always come out bit dull and desaturated. I also tried printing a red swatch directly from the default red in Flexi but it is still duller than it should be.

Any help would be appreciated. TIA!

Are you creating your own output profiles?

I'm using the output profiles assigned by the substrate manufacturer. Different profiles for different materials, of course. Reds look cruddy on all materials.

That your biggest problem. You need to be creating your own profiles if you want to be getting more saturated reds.

I went in and created a custom profile as suggested. I didn't notice a huge difference, but I'm sure it helped nevertheless.

I think my main issue is that I wasn't using a good red to begin with. It was recommended to me to use the default red in Flexi, but I did some other swatches and they looked much better than the Flexi red. So I'll make a few more swatches and see what prints the best and go from there.

Thanks for the input!
