The presentation demonstrated how through alternative methods of digital print production the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) developed methodologies for digital printing that attempted to move beyond standard reproductive print methods. Profiling is used for input and output hardware, along with bespoke profiling for fine art printmaking papers. Examples of artist's work, and examples from the Perpetual Portfolio were included - an artist in residence scheme for selected artists wanting to work at the Centre and to make a large-format digital print. Colour is an important issue: colour fidelity, colour density on paper, colour that can be achieved through multiple-pass printing. Research is also underway to test colour shortfalls in inkjet ink range, and to extend colour through the use of traditional printing inks.
