G7 Print Condition Webinar

Presented by: Ron Ellis, Color Management Consultant, Ron Ellis Consulting LLC
Guest Speaker: Jim Wachob, Prepress Systems Manager, HardingPoorman Group

Being able to maintain a press calibration is as important as the initial calibration procedure itself. Today’s successful printers are able to consistently print with great repeatability. A great part of this is the ability to measure color, understand what these measurements mean, and use this information to improve your daily production. In this topic we will cover how to use measurements for process control, and how to hold and adjust the calibration of a G7 reference print condition.

The Value of Color Quality Assurance Webinar

Presented by: Director of Technical Sales

The challenge for flexographic, digital and packaging printers to produce accurate and consistent color to exacting customer’s standards has grown exponentially over time. Printing single jobs on multiple presses and print facilities presents the unique challenge of how to catch color, density and dot gain variations early in the print process. Implementing a color quality assurance process enabling printers to set and monitor the color tolerances for density, delta E and dot gain, and that provides immediate detailed feedback on how well the job is conforming to customer tolerances during production, regardless of location, is the answer.
