UnitedPress printing group are targeting ISO 12647-2 in printing processes and have decided to support standard color profiles.

Suggested profiles for different paper types:

ISOcoated v2 - sheetfed gloss coated

ISOcoated v2 300 - sheetfed silk coated and heatset (web) coated

ISOwebcoated - heatset (web) on LWC paper

SCpaper - heatset (web) on SC (supercalandered) paper

Uncoated - sheetfed on uncoated paper

UncoatedYellow - sheetfed on uncoated slightly yellowish paper

Uncoated profiles from colormanagement.org were chosen due to lower total ink amount. For printing on coated paper we prefer profiles generated from FOGRA39 dataset that keep total ink amount at the level fit for particular paper, e.g max 300% for heatset and also silk paper on sheetfed.

For Munken, Amber and Arctic papers please download the ICC profiles provided by Arctic Paper.

Technical notes and additional profiles can be found from:

www.eci.org - ISOcoated v2, ISOwebcoated, SCpaper
www.colormanagement.org - for uncoated and uncoatedYellow
