X-Rite Showcases How Digital Workflow Solutions Keep Colors Connected at PRINTING United

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., October 3, 2023 – At PRINTING United, October 18-20 in Atlanta, GA, X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC, will demonstrate how a connected ecosystem of color measurement, specification, formulation, and quality control solutions helps printers simplify print workflows, exceed brand requirements, and improve print quality. Commercial, packaging, and specialty printers can reduce waste, boost profitability, and grow their print business by keeping their color data digitally connected from design through production. 

“As the costs of materials and inks rise, print providers need integrated solutions that streamline workflows to better manage shorter print runs, last-minute design changes, and tighter color tolerances,” said Jon-Michael McCartney, Director Print and Packaging, X-Rite. “At PRINTING United, we will demonstrate how production printers of all sizes can add consistent, precise color quality control into their workflow – during specification and design, throughout formulation, on press, and in the finished product. With a digital color workflow, print providers get to approved color faster, saving time, improving productivity while reducing ink and material waste.”
