    I can't seem to get my printer to gray without it looking green. I've tried adjusting the color, but still comes out greenish. I have an hp8000 and am printing on 3651 oracal and is on it's profile. Please help

    If it's solid, (ie not in a gradient) I can replace the color with a tint of black in my RIP...

    When we had a Seiko 64S (same as HP 8000/9000) I was never able to hit gray without a hint of green. I was using PhotoPRINT DX RIP and doing designs in Adobe. It wasn't much fun but I tried to stay away from gray. I know that isn't what you want to hear but that was my experience.

    It's gradient too. It was a poster it gray gradient and they mention they like purple and so I tried to change the layout with purple gradient and guess what, it looks more gray with a hint of purple in it.

    profile, profile, profile.

    Grey is a mix of CMYK...
    Too much C and you get a green cast
    Too much M and you get a red cast.

    these need to be balanced properly in the profile for the best chance at grey.

    Overlam will add a bit of green cast as well.
    Better to be a bit red in most cases.
