UPDATE: All new curves available at https://piezography.com/downloads/piezography-community-edition

 

<OLDER CONTENT>

The is a curves update for QuadTone RIP users of the Piezography MPS Glossy system.
Piezography Glossy printing is any type of printing on non-matte papers (including Baryta).

These papers require our MPS inks which are both matte and glossy compatible due to additional layers of pigment encapsulation. All Piezography pigment is encapsulated to prevent agglomeration due to static charge. However, in order to adhere to non-matte surfaces, we developed two new inks (Selenium K7/K6 and Warm Neutral K7/K6) and a new photo black shade 1 (MPS Black: aka Selenium Shade 1), and a Gloss Optimizer that is used to overcoat.

The process of making a Glossy Piezography print is to select the correct ink curve for the non-matte medium, a quick dry, and then a second printing of Gloss Optimizer using the GO curve. The effect is perfect when compared side-by-side with either an EPSON ABW or an HP print. All of the gloss differential is perfectly equalized so it is not possible to discern the difference between ink and paper. Bronzing is minimalized and with some papers completely eliminated. There is no metamerism.

Eventually these Glossy curves will be part of the QTR download. Until then you can download and install yourself. If you need a curve for a paper that is not listed you can have a custom curve made by InkjetMall for $99 by clicking here.

Instructions for installing curves

(Mac) /Applications/QuadToneRIP/Profiles/Printer Model-K7

NOTE: With Mac users, you must uninstall your Quad printer model then reinstall it using the install.command located in the same folder you placed the new curve in. This will show the new curve in QuadTone RIP.
