I may be pressed to try to profile a print system that’s new to me - HP Latex ink printed onto fabric. These things are used to make giant murals & signage at trade shows. The fabric in question here is a heavy knit, but I know sometimes they use other fabrics & actually stretch them onto frames (I’m not even gonna ask this, but imagine - how do you profile a fabric that gets stretched?!).
Anyway, I have i1Profiler Publish, an i1iO (first version) and an i1Pro2 stand-alone. I am told the print vendor drives the printers with an Onyx RIP, and am trying to get to the production guy who actually operates it, to see if he can get my CYMK target files output without conversion. But I’m wondering whether my i1iO (or the i1Pro2) can handle reading output on fabric.
Does anyone here have any experience profiling these sorts of beasts? Any tips or guidance will be greatly appreciated.
