Term Definition
Color Separated Lasers

Laser proofs are black and white or CMYK digital, non-film proofs which can be run out as composites or as color separated sheets. Lasers are used to check spelling, grammer, image placement, photo cropping and the proper separation of colors. Lasers are the least expensive form of proofing available. However, they are also the least accurate for image detail and color matching. Composite laser proofs indicate that all colors which will print have been used to produce the laser print-out. Color-separated laser proofs indicate that each ink color has been printed out on its own separate laser print-out. (e.g. CMYK separated laser proofs result in four sheets of laser print-outs; one each for the cyan, magenta, yellow and black.)
