Color Profile for Premium Paper

Will there be a new color profile for the Premium Paper or is the same type of paper just thicker? 

I’ve been using the "HP5000SemimatteExp05.icc" and been impressed with how accurate the color has been.

 Has anyone gotten a book with the Premium Paper yet?  If so how is it?         

Thanks

I am extremely impressed with the Premium Paper.  It is thick and glossy and similiar to what you would find in any book on photography in a bookstore.  I don’t have comparison to the regular paper though as I’ve only ordered one test copy so far.

New to Blurb & Color Profiling, or are you a Pro who just wants to see what specific colors REALLY look like in print? This Book Will Help!
(This is NOT a replacement for keeping calibrated monitors and using correct profiles… BUT it certainly does help in finding the right color to use in your project!!!)

GREAT FOR BLURB BOOK MAKERS! See how a Specific Color Value will look once printed through Blurb’s printers. Or use as a reference in picking the right background color for your project!

an excerpt from the forum pocies…..

Sorry Tony,

I did review the forum policies prior to posting, and I posted in only THREE forums relevant to specifically COLOR as I thought that this book would be VERY helpful to many Blurb members facing the challenges of predicting color outcomes. I actually did change the posts a little bit so technically (and very technically,) they aren’t all the same posts. BUT I do get what you’re saying and I apologize for the spamming impression.

My goal was to provide members exposure to a tool that may make Blurb book creation and color printing predictable for those who are new to Blurb, who may not own monitor calibration kits, or who simple would like the desktop reference when trying to find a color for their project, and since these books are printed through Blurb, they’ll know the quality to expect for their own books.(Which I’m impressed with every time I order my own.)

I heed your warning and apologize!

Sincerely, 

Heather Grimmer

I like your idea Heather, I think the book could prove very useful.

It is akward to remind people about the rules without appearing "crabby", it was meant as a reminder rather than a formal complaint.
