Data must be created with the same profile as the proof. For all data we require binding templates: For reasons of factual accuracy print-outs, B/W copies or faxes have to be supplied. For accuracy of colour, you must provide us with digital proofs which have an Ugra/ FOGRA media wedge as well as an info line. Colour deviation between the actual measured values of the examined media wedge and the nominal values set by the Ugra/FOGRA must lie within the tolerance specified by the Print Media Standard.
