Does anyone know of a way to make a printable swatchbook (in CS or CS2 Indesign or in Illustrator) from any of the swatch libraries? I want to be able to print the colors on the digital press here in town, so that i can choose my colors more easily from the printout. But I have not been able to find any plugin that sets up such a document.
such a swatch book is here:
In order to avoid misunderstandings:
It's a PDF which contains (originally) PostScript
graphics for all ink mixtures CMYK, each channel
in steps of 10 from 0 to 100.
It can be used for instance for an inkjet.
For offset I would prefer commercially printed swatch
books e.g. for EuroScale Coated or ISO Coated
Using 'any of the swatch libraries' boils down to
define the patches in PostScript by Lab values.
This is, generally spoken, not simple.
An example comes here:
It can be used for printing spot inks by a CMYK process
instead of using mixed inks.
