No we are printing these gift card carriers with varying 4/C backgrounds and another plant is saying they read LAB's from the press OK and run to that on subsequent runs.

I just don't see how accurate that can be?

Could they be referring to CIP4 or any adjustments made to them when they read a scanned sheet it can give density/lab readings etc.

It would give the press operator the same settings to reprint.
Of course this would only work if it is printed on the same press.
