I have an HP latex 335 large format printer and utilise SAI software for the rip etc.
I have a client who requires a print that matches there Pantone.
My question is I have discovered the colour mapping function within SAI which allows you to print a sample with cmyk variations which you than use to compare to your specific Pantone. Once you have found the closest matching option you can update the colour within SAi so in future any artwork with that Pantone prints with the amended cmyk values. This process is achieved by importing an eps file with the Pantone. Now where I’m confused is if a do my artwork in AI and export a PNG or PDF as CMYK, when I import into SAI how does it know the Pantone I’m using? Apologies if I’m overthinking this. In my AI doc should the colour management be set as spot or process?
