I received a minute ago the second printed attempt: worst.😩 At the same time, I start to be more familiar with all bugs, fresh or already reported (and I have ideas for workarounds). The quest continues on a path full of traps. I'll detail about it once I'll have a good result.
@piggo The printer is a big print-on-demand company with tons of book per day. This jobs are handled by factories with printer operators; they just load the PDF, and ship the result. If the PDF has bugs, not their problems.
That's being said; next tests will be on a mini booklet to reduce shipping cost and price of the proof. Because I discover so many color management issues and bugs... V1 and V2 workflow were both correct; but result is not comform. 😔
@davidrevoy did you see this post on #krita-artists? https://mastodon.social/@Krita_artists/103317609156831144
Maybe you could discuss with him what his workflow is...he seems very happy with his results. Just a suggestion.
@LPS The Krita part works. But I assume this thread is about an artist who send CMYK file to a publisher that manage the printed colors afterward (so Adobe color management with Indesign/Acrobat after that for sure.)
The real challenge on my side is to get full FLOSS from artwork to the printer and get Scribus to produce a PDF with the exact PDF-X1 standard and the color profile of my printer... I meet a lot of bugs on the way (things that display as if they work, but doesn't in background)
I'm not sure, would probably be helpful to speak with him directly to confirm. It might save you alot of time and effort. In english we have a funny expression, "when you assume it makes an "ass" out of "u" and "me" :)
@LPS You are right. We never know. Done.
@ELR I'll use only one POD service because I can't manage multiple (too time consuming, especially to declare taxes and manage products). I'm using OneBookShelf who already have a big catalog of comics and ship from USA and England.
In this project the POD service manages sending the item directly to customers from factory ( and with a factory in USA and Englaud they ship world wide).
I don't have any experience managing world wide shipping for products. Sorry.
@davidrevoy Oof, courage!!! 💪
ouch... that world suddenly looks very bleak rather than vibrant!
@davidrevoy 😮 Sorry to see you having a hard time specially with all the heavy work you have put into this! Hope you can find a least a work-around if not the solution for it, keep the spirit high! 🙂
@Quiralta 😍 Thank you!
