Managing color on a particular imaging system is a wellunderstood challenge with a wealth of existing models, methods and techniques. In the case of printing systems, these tend to operate in the context of a single substrate, where managing color on every additional substrate is
approach as a separate, detached problem. While such a mind-set works reasonably well in general, it breaks down when it comes to printing onto precolored textiles, such as pre-dyed fabrics. The present paper therefore introduces a family of approaches that support the use of multiple pre-colored
textiles on a given printing system that also allow for a balance between characterization effort and color match accuracy. This, in turn provides solutions that can fit a variety of practical working patterns to maximize overall efficiency and performance.
