I've got an add delivered which apparently used the colour profile us
webcoated (swop) v2 while making the pdf in indesign.

I've placed the add on a new indesign page and made a new pdf using
no colour conversion in the jobprofile and indesign having the default
profile Europe Isocoated Fogra27.

When a cmyk colour is used like 53,0,100,0 should it matter which colour
profile indesign is set to? Isn't it so that no matter wat, the same colour
is printed?

When I set the document in indesign to a us webcoated profile, on the
monitor I can see the slight difference in colour. I guesss that's why they
are complaining now. Saying that the printed colour is wrong. But
basically, it's the same colour 53,0,100,0

So who is doing something wrong? Me or the company who made the
