Solved: StudioPrint linearization question


#1

I know this is almost old school but how many patches does IJM recommend when doing a fresh linearization process in StudioPrint v12? I will be using Carbon shades 1, 2, 4, 5


#2

I use 40 for the first. Then I use 40 for the second. Then I switch to 80. Finally I do 80 for the fourth and I linearize to the deepest dMax and clip it there (only if the deepest is less than #80). Doing it four times really smooths it out. The two 40 patch linearizations rough it in. The 80s add the finesse.


#3

Thank you, just could not remember the best method. Guess this is what weekends are for…???..


#4

The conversion from Piezotone Carbon Sepia to Carbon K7 was a success. Jon, all went perfect, tones look great, yes the color is a bit warmer (red?) but I like it. Test prints on Hahnemuhle/Harman Baryta Gloss are so rich.


#5

Fantastic, thanks for letting us know! Yes, Piezography K7 and PiezoTone Carbon-Sepia are slightly different “color”. Carbon is the most similar Piezography K7 ink set to PiezoTone Carbon-Sepia.

Best regards and happy printing~ Dana :slight_smile:
