Today’s packaging workflows are complex, often involving multiple brand owners, design agencies, premedia professionals, and plating and ink companies, all providing input into the production workflow. This can make managing accurate color and print consistency a challenge. The ColorCert Suite simplifies color communication across all internal and external stakeholders. From prepress and the inkroom to production process control, it helps you manage precise color and print specifications, uniting traditional silos of information into one common workflow.
ColorCert for Print & Packaging Converters
The ColorCert Suite was developed from the ground up to enable the packaging industry to better manage the complexities of CMYK, Expanded Gamut, and Spot Color workflows, regardless of the printing process, substrate, or industry standard. Its modular set of tools streamline communications, provide actionable data and enable better utilization of existing people, processes and technologies.
ColorCert for Brand Owners
For brand owners, ensuring accurate, consistent color and print consistency across a regional or global supply chain can be challenging. Many brands rely on on-site press approvals to ensure this consistency…. But what happens on a rerun? The traditional “mail in samples” approach can be complex to manage, and in most cases samples are not viewed until a problem occurs and the product is already on shelf.
The ColorCert Suite enables digital communication of exact color and print requirements, producing near-real-time data for each and every press run in an easy-to-understand dashboard. This “running to the numbers” concept allows print suppliers to better understand expectations, monitor print quality on press, and report the data instantly. This proactive reporting process means everyone in the supply chain, down to the press operator, is accountable and an active participant in ensuring the ultimate in print quality.
Brands and converters are increasingly leveraging ColorCert’s ScoreCard approach for a more strategic approach to color management, viewing color performance holistically rather than based on a single press sheet.
