We all love taking tests, but have you ever taken a color test?
On our last blog, we spoke about color and how we view color. So what would be a good way to tell how YOU see color? What if I were the floor manager at a press shop (offset) and I need a John Deere job printed today. We all know that the color for John Deere is green. But they have their own green. Which operator would I give it to? Which press operator can run this job the best?
One cool fact coming from the field is that the best press operators are color blind. Yes, color blind. So how can they run jobs off a press so perfect day in and day out? These guys run by the numbers. They live with their densitometers and spectrophotometers and simply run by the numbers.
The test consists of four trays containing a total of 85 removable color reference caps (incremental hue variation) spanning the visible spectrumColor vision abnormalities and aptitude are detected by the ability of the test subject to place the color caps in order of hueThe four trays are boxed in a handsome carrying caseThe test must be administered under daylight conditions such as that provided by GretagMacbeth SpectraLight® and Judge viewing booth.FM 100 Hue Test Scoring Software included with test purchaseSystem requirements: MAC OS X, Windows 98, Windows XP or Windows 2000Test complies with ISO and other quality system requirements
