The goal of this research was to establish the consistent and predictable workflow from the screen to the print on uncoated paper, taking into account specific constraints of the substrate and the reproduction process. The substrate is a major factor in determination of the attainable full-tone density and affects the reproducible color contrast, which both have a large impact on overall print quality. The specific restrictions on uncoated paper are determined by a rough surface on which there is always a large dot gain, reduced relative printing contrast compared to a print on coated paper, as well as the reduced gamut of colors that can be reproduced. By implementing color management ICC profiles characterized for specific uncoated printing substrate and by conducting proposed correction methods in the prepress, as well as optimizing the thickness of ink in printing, it is possible to achieve high quality color reproduction. In the experimental part of this work special test target was designed and printed in offset on three different types of uncoated paper and one type coated paper. The test target was composed of ten types of color strips for instrumental measurements of dot gain, relative printing contrast, raster tonal value, full-tone density, etc. In addition, a photograph for visual assessment of prints was included. To be able to objectively compare the color differences of prints, spectrophotometric measurements of color strips were also made and analyzed.
