Default Corel to VersaWorks CYMK problems

Hey guys,

I have a SP-300v and the graphic i'm trying to print i've created in corelDraw x4 and let's just say it's a gray square...but when i export it into .eps or do a print to file as a .ps and try printing it through versaworks, the image is cleary being printed in all colors and not just black...thus the magenta is overpowering the rest of the colors and is giving it pink tint...i've gone though just about everything i can think of to get it to export and print using just black (which i was successfull in doing when i setup the color management to density control...but it comes out very grainy and striated)...anyone have any suggestions?

yeah...but even when i got the roland palette imported into corel and used the right color...what was supposed to be c:0 y:0 m:0 k:65 when it plotted i could see that it was putting magenta down...and i can't find any good tutorials on how to play with color profiles in versaworks...the video you posted showed one other place to look to fix it...but once i get there...i don't know what to do and it didn't come with a very clear manual besides on how to install the program...

Ok - this is true for all printers.
Your ICC profile is used to convert colours so that they will appear true on the printer. There is a 'Black' setting that is used to define the best printer black. It is never K=100%. Often it can be C=100, M=100, Y=100 & K=100. Producing the CMYK profile, you have an option to control the make-up of the black and I prefer to keep the black ink dominant.
Q - Why do you want just black? Is it just the cost?
Q - How much are you prepared to pay to have it?
If the colours are good, live with it.

yeah, i see the color chart...but how do i tell it to print gray using only black instead of using the rest of the colors? even when i print out the chart or the swatch...the grays are still coming out with a pink hue because it's putting down magenta...i just want gray made from black...

You change your profile - or avoid ICC altogether.

i'm using the GCVP: glossy calendered vinyl [esm] as my media type...and i don't know what u mean by profile (where is it? how do i check?) i guess the main problem is that i don't know HOW to do that? when i exported...i unselect the icc setting...but what do i do inside of versaworks to make it work? i can't find any tutorials or manuals on what does what, what it means, and how to do it...under what "profiles" i see...it's just a jumble of letters and numbers that don't mean anything to me...

Default Re: Corel to VersaWorks CYMK problems

rough weekend indeed...I've been having problems with this gray issue for a long time...on static cling/glossy white calendared avery vinyl/different garment heat transfer films...

I've tried with and without icc when exporting from corel...still pink...

i'm exporting as cymk...all the colors i'm using in coral to make the graphic is in cymk...

i've had this plotter for 2 years now...it's great when i'm doing full color...but when i'm doing large areas of gray...it's giving me problems...

i've been silkscreening since 2000...and most of my projects have been simple spot color jobs where the client usually brought me the graphic and just print it and never messed with icc or profiles or anything...

I'm sorry if i sound short or snappy...it's just this is getting very frustrating...but i do appreciate u taking time out to help me...
