    I have created instructions on how to print grey balance at press. (See Attached)
    I also included an ICC profile for your proofer, if using MY numbers.
    The uncoated is GREAT as well!

    Though all are well and correct, I have one small objection Dan, it is better to measure -if possible- with spectrophotometer first, to determine the closest Δe of process colors and decide your density that comes closer to a chosen target -fogra 39/27/mxccxvii or inhouse proofer-. Then you can calibrate grey balance.
    Nevertheless your input is precious and welcome!

    Happy new year to all! -better than that crappy 2020!-
