Can a Z3200 be set up to produce contract proofs for submissions to offset printers?

I had some of our carton art printed on an Epson 9000 and I'm trying to match the output on out Z3200. I have epson proofing paper loaded and I've run a calibration for that paper. It's coming out over saturated.

It is hard to match those Epson pro colors, since Epson has much better inks & colors .


I have 2 Z3200ps & 2 Z3100Ps 44" , But I have been printing the most beautiful giclee prints of still life flower & fruit paintings & no other printers could ever match. Except my friend's Epson Pro 98000 does not need varnish coating protection & myseld apply coating for all. I am too worry color fadings.


I guess for offset printers, You can try to convert the image file to adobe CMYK....  then when you print it out & use the same adobe CMYK icc profile near the bottom.


Myself use lots of matt canvas & HP artist matt canvas icc profile yields much better colors & sharpness . My customers were very happy with results.  except for skin tone has little too red & I must less 15% magenta.


Print out small image & experiment with different Z3200 icc profiles, in order to find the most & best match.


Good luck.
