It is expected that the continuing development of computer technology will lead to the possibility of using alternative printing methods with quality suitable for large competitions.
Most printing devices use a 4-colour technique (CMYK). For such devices the same colour settings as recommended for 4-colour offset printing may be suitable, but the colour appearance will vary slightly from one device to another and from one paper quality to another.
Extensive experimentation with different colour and halftone settings, different paper qualities and other variables will be necessary to achieve a quality as close to offset printing as possible. Such experimentation has to be done for a whole range of devices. This specification can therefore not give any general recommendations for the use of such alternative printing methods.
