    Problems with Printing Large Blocks of Colour in InDesign CS 5.5

    Rach4833

      I am hoping someone can help me. 

       

      I purchased InDesign CS 5.5 and Konica Konica Magicolor 7450ll Printer for my business. Essentially I am creating A4 sheets with a background colour with three or four lines of white text.  I was advised that InDesign was the best tool for this type of work.

       

      I seem to be able to create brilliantly flat colours when using the inbuilt CMYK swatches, however if I attempt to create a new swatch or even fade an inbuilt swatch the print is not flat, it is patchy and very poor quality.

       

      I raised the issue with Konica, and they have stated that it is an InDesign fault? I am running Windows XP. They told me to do a search on InDesign/Windows conflicts but I have not been able to find any articles which address this problem.

       

      I have created a PDF and get the same problem, I copied the artwork into Photoshop and the print was much much better but still nowhere near the vibrancy of the inbuilt CMYK swatches.

       

      Can anyone assist me with this issue?

       

      Thanks in advance.
