The Phantom™ Precision Hand Proofer is designed to draw down water, UV or solvent based ink, adhesives or coatings. The device can be utilized on any substrate. Because the ceramic anilox proofer roll is laser engraved, the engraved cells are the exact line screen and volume just like you have on your press.

The color match that you get on the proof is the same color match that you will get off the press. If you need to modify the ink before you go to the press, you can do this and check it with the Phantom Proofer.

To produce a sample proof: Lay the substrate out on a smooth flat surface. Install the desired proofer roll in the Phantom assembly. Turn the adjustment knob to set the impression. Apply a dollop (1/2 teaspoon) of ink to the laser engraved proofer roll. Tilt the proofer at a 45 degree angle resting the rubber roll on the substrate. Draw the proofer towards you. That’s pretty much it. You should have a perfect color match. Speed does not matter because we are metering with a doctor blade. A more detailed instruction booklet comes with the proofer.
