DuPont Color Proofing has developed a more accurate way to proof Pantone metallic colors. Its Waterproof Color Versatility System can proof process printing colors and thousands of custom colors on both sides of the actual printing stock. A "Metallic Color Blending Guide" for the analog proofer is online at www.dupont.com/proofing. The firm also announced the commercialization of the WaterProof Color Versatility ink formulator, a PC-based software application that provides quick and accurate CV ink formulas to match Pantone and other specialty spot colors. Users can compensate for job stock when calculating color formulas. Customers' ink formulas also can be archived in a database for easy access. A Macintosh version is planned.
