Print and Packaging

With an expanding set of choices for materials, inks, and technologies, and an increasingly global supply chain, it's no wonder controlling color is such a challenge. Rely on X-Rite color management solutions to specify, communicate, produce, and monitor consistent and predictable color. 
X-Rite color solutions encompass each step in the process of color selection to final production. Click on your role or process step below to view the solution best suited to your needs.

Ensuring that the colors you choose can be achieved consistently in final production is critical. A complete specification/design solution consists of the right digital and physical color standards, color profiling and calibration tools for devices like monitors and proofing printers, a light booth for controlled visual evaluation of color, a color measurement device like a spectrophotometer, and software. Check out our featured solutions below.
