GMC Inspire...

I thought you were talking about a new Hybrid from General Motors for a moment.  :rotf:

The Rest... / Any GMC Inspire users?

We just bought GMC Inspire (now called Quadient Inspire) and are halfway through the first week of basic training. Anybody else on here use it? It's crazy powerful (and equally expensive), but seems pretty complex to do what I think of as fairly simple VDP tasks.

We had a Canon IMPOproofer (it was basically two Canon Impographs facing each other) at my last shop. It was great, the backup can be finicky though but was usually within 1/16th of an inch. If you're busy enough to keep it going that's great, otherwise, you have to was two slots on the roll to feed a single 2 sided proof through the machine. My old shop was leaning toward flexo and only has a single 40" press now so we were wasting paper on it like crazy.

Photoshop is my quick go-to for CMYK to PMS but that is a neat tool, cap'n.

Fujifilm XMF / Re: XMF compatible proofer

I used to make backed-up proofs, too, but instead of mc hristel's method I would glue a small item (a flat Lego worked great) to the Epson where the white paper alignment line is and when I loaded a sheet I would make sure it butted up against the Lego. Print one side, then flip the sheet and re-load (again, butt up against the Lego) and print the second side.

Using this method it was important to accurately enter the sheet width into the rip (we used ORIS Color Tuner at the time). We'd have to tweak the width number a bit each time we opened a new box of paper, but for the most part our backups were within 1/16".

We do the same here. We have GMG and Fiery pushing our Epson 9900s, but are looking for a better and faster option. We are looking into the IMPOProofer or possibly the DJet. Thanks Tracy - the Ninja Master for the heads up on this thread. Very helpful.

We had a discussion about proofers here (hope I linked it right)

It was about XMF but it went into 2 sided proofing
