More from Idealliance
Many printers are familiar with the print quality programs required by some of their customers. For the brand, a print quality program assures that the printed product meets their color requirements. Brand colors are important and print materials often serve as a direct representation of a brand. Whether it’s a product label, packaging or even a brochure, print quality can significantly influence a customer’s perception of a company.

Perfect color in wide-format printing can often prove elusive. Misaligned expectations, improper file preparation, inconsistent viewing conditions, overlooked maintenance, and knowledge gaps all conspire against printers seeking to deliver quality and efficiency. Yet simple steps can help minimize headaches while maximizing the potential of these powerful production technologies.
Following PRINTING United Expo in Atlanta, GA it is clear that the industry has taken a renewed focus on color & print quality to leverage the available technology. Color was on display across the Expo as leading print technology providers demonstrated their ability to produce innovative products across packaging, commercial print, wide format displays and graphics, inkjet, textile and other print applications.
