After a month of testing, we finally felt good about delivering consistent results with our new Piezography system. We did a small project, the client loved the prints and approved them. Those prints are set aside as our color masters for this and future editions, and we began to make final prints for delivery. Then we hit the snag…
We are unable to properly spot the prints. We have been using the same kits to spot final prints for all of our pigment printing for years, we use a Berg system. Sadly, the Berg inks will not stick to gloss or semi-gloss prints that have had GO applied to them. Horrors! Obviously, this is a critical step in final delivery of exhibition prints. Much as we try to control humidity and dust in our environment, no studio will ever be 100% dust free unless you build a clean room and wear hazmat suits. Can other Piezography printers tell me what products they are using to do their final spotting on glossy prints?
