Sponsored Workshop: Building a Color Management Strategy Tailored to Your Devices

This workshop is to introduce the theory behind how to control color, while still offering a variety of solutions based on your full color capability or needs for brand matching. Tailored for print operators or shop owners, we’ll offer new practices for those who have expanded beyond their original form of printing. You may be new to digital sheet fed (small or large), toner based or inkjet, even grand format.

Attendees will learn what color to focus on where, how to introduce key variables to increase profits, and where standards play a roll both in sales and quality.
Note: A basic knowledge of color space, and gamut will be a plus for this workshop.
