  • My tip of the day when Printing grey!

    Hi guys.

    After all these years, being an owner of a Roland SP540V, I have never managed to print a decent grey without it showing a pink tinge. I believe this is a common problem with other printers as well.

    Today it got a bit quiet, so I was messing about with settings, and I found out something.

    If you go into Versaworks, under Quality / Colour Management, if you choose MAX DENSITY US. it prints a perfect grey! It works pretty well on MAX DENSITY JAPAN as well.

    The media typesetting I was using was Generic vinyl 111 High quality.

    I have not tried it on any other media types.

    Your welcome!

    Our first job for our “thermal printer” 20+ years ago was this very issue!
    the job was local authority work and it was for 60 odd vans. They were happy enough, but I hated them for this reason alone. pink/magenta tinge, not grey!
