For that we have a Global Proofing system that was implemented about 2 years ago. We send QC a pdf of the client-supplied file + a pdf of our trapped input file and they are compared to both the imposed Epson proof and the printed sheet. The scanner/computer in the proofing system will check for any differences. It's helpful for missing text/elements, but also can detect blanket smashes and hickeys on the printed sheet from the press. That way the run can be stopped before it really gets going.

Nice. I guess it's been long enough out of production facilities for me to have fallen behind on technologies like this...  I'm glad to see they're being implemented. The waste was one of my biggest issues when I first got into printing. I always hated how much just went in the trash when a run went south..
Oh, our guys are still pretty good at making trash....

Yep, we still run daily, weekly, monthly bird-cage-liners on WWII era web presses. See an error on one of these rags and shrug it off... they'll get another chance to get it right next week.  :rotf:

It doesn't matter how many chances you give them. They always get it wrong. If nothing else they are consistent.

So that's how a modern printshop works? Sorry, I was stuck in 1985.
