le règlage (des machines)


Explanation:
Un imprimeur français rencontré ce matin m'a dit qu'on pourrait traduire comme cela. D'après lui il n'y a pas de terme technique français pour traduire press pass. Il dit qu'effectivement les clients peuvent venir ce jour-la pour faire regler les machines au mm pour obtenir exactement le resultat recherché.

Reference: final approval "on press"

Reference information:
For a major print run, the "press pass" is the final test run on the press itself (as distinct from proofs, which may be produced on a proofing device), during which final adjustments can be made, and approved by the client, before the production run proper starts.

This can represent a major investment of time by the client, as they have to travel to the press and often spend a day or more on site.

Long narrative account of attending a "press pass" here: http://rhgdigital.co.uk/blogs/ebury/?p=97

"PrintHouse Corporation has a press colour calibrated proofing process so you know what you see in the proof is pretty much what will be delivered. And as we are a London printer it is also easy to get to us if a press pass is required." [http://printquote.printhouse.co.uk/2009/09/print-estimate-ap...]
