Running regular registration test can ensure you will have perfect registration between your CMYK and White. This will also help you ensure proper dot placement which affects your color gamut. This is a step by step process not for the beginner. It requires a USB powered loupe and proper understanding of the software. This is something that has affected every Velox owner. It is a process that has to happen more frequently under higher production environments. We encourage customers to join in to help increase your comfort level with this process.
