    Today, all of a sudden my grays aren't gray. My Mutoh started printing gray kinda pink-purpleish.
    I checked my profile, and it's the same one I switched to about a year ago, because of the same problem.

    Is there anything else besides my profile that could cause this color change?

    Are all of your heads firing properly ?? Sounds like reds/yellows might be a little tardy getting to the vinyl..... if at all.

    Test print looks good, and all other colors look good. It's just my grays.

    That is supposed to fade from light gray to dark gray. The yellows, and reds look good.

    Did you create the artwork in Flexi? Try making the grays a K only value, or pull down the other values.

    Yep, that shoots a hole in my theory.

    Also make sure it is not using an embedded profile that can ignore your current profile.

    ...has the lighting in your workshop been changed?....I get this color change when viewing Grey's mostly, especially under some older Fluro tubes or Tungsten based lighting...it looks Grey again when viewed outside under Sunlight.

    CMYK versus RBG thru the RIP? Try sending as RGB file?
