Sunday, 1:10 p.m. – 2:10 p.m. Using G7® to Coordinate Across Print Technologies and Locations
Meeting G7® standards can be tricky on any press at any time. What do you do when you are trying to get a G7® shared appearance across 13 different continuous web litho presses, two sheetfed litho presses, 10 continuous web inkjet presses, 10 flexo presses, three proofers, and three color toner devices? Not to mention running more than 20 different paper stocks during any given month just in continuous web litho. Oh, and don’t forget that several of the devices do not even allow you to introduce G7® curves at all. Mike will be discussing how introducing G7® and print standards across all technologies has changed the way that IWCO Direct manages color.
