there is a certain amount of give and take in reproducing original art or transparencies as many colours cannot be reproduced exactly as the
Once the proofing is complete the image is stored on a CD so that any image can then be printed on demand. However there is the misconception
that results can be duplicated exactly at any time. The factors that contribute to repeatability are numerous and include paper, inks, temperature, humidity etc.
Many fine art papers are made in Europe in old mills and the spring water used in the production is an integral part of the process. Winter paper is more consistent
than spring and summer paper. Also the inks that are used are subject to variation. When a gain in longevity is established by the introduction
of new dyes or pigments, operators always want to utilize them. This almost always produces a slightly different color gamut from the previous set. So it isn't
expected that an image stored on a CD can be repeated exactly year after year. The print will be very similar but not exactly the same as a print printed previously
