    Hi guys

    I'm printing a gradient fade from white to light blue as the background on my image. Image created in Illustrator. The blue fade makes a big color jump from light blue to darker blue without fading smoothly.
    I've exported to PDF and EPS formats from Ai. Same thing though the color transition is a little different depending.

    Any ideas?

    I figured out the fix, but not the issue. I had created a custom profile (environment) and when I use that environment in Colorburst I don't get smooth transitions in my gradients. I tried the canned profile for the type of vinyl I'm using (IJ35) and the gradient looks fine. Weird.

    Have you tried it in both perceptual and colorimetric? Any difference?

    Are your linearization curves smooth and calibrated in that custom profile?

    it's not your profile it is Illustrator. We see this a lot. Build your gradient in photoshop and you will see it prints smooth. not sure why.
