David. What is white backing? What do we have to pay attention to?What is white backing?The purpose for the proper white backing is that every paper has a certain amount of translucency, meaning that if light hits the paper, it's going to shine through the paper and an instrument has a light in it, so when an instrument shines on the paper, what's behind the paper greatly affects what's returned into the instrument measurement head.
And when you're taking multiple prints on different printers, on different substrates, and you want to know that the prints are close to one another, the effect of the backing, ...

That means we try to move from a more visual base to a more objective measurement-based way. And if you have happened to have customers expecting a certain quality, a certain level of color accuracy for spot color matching GRACoL and or FOGRA, then you are needed, you are requested to print the expected and to double check and going to industrial printing, going more to the industrial way of working this kind of objective report gives you the right fundamental tool to objectify you're doing, to objectify your work.
And also a lot of what people do not always explicitly ask for the quality, but those kind of quality ...
