Colour is now the life-blood of every print business and critical to its continued growth and success. The world of print is moving to full colour; we have seen a dramatic transition from mono print to full colour in office documents and commercial print applications. In the current operating climate there is no place for poor colour control or inconsistent print results either in offset or digital. Controlling colour is now a basic requirement for all printers yet less than 15% have a fully automated colour managed workflow. A colour management process can take enormous cost out of the production environment through accurate proofing, reducing machine set up times and improving running speeds, not to mention being able to guarantee consistent colour and quality on both offset and digital jobs.
