The printed piece doesn't match the proof, results are inconsistent and everyone's upset. Its total COLOR CHAOS!!! What do you do!?
It often takes such a crisis to get "everyone" (print buyers, communications managers, photographers, designers, prepress providers and printers) thinking PROACTIVELY about color control instead of simply reacting to color problems. Imagine if proofs actually matched the press sheets, monitors were truly color accurate and all your printers produced consistently good color.
"Controlling Color Chaos" is a 3-part webinar series produced jointly with ColorManagement.com, that will demonstrate how color management is used to help print buyers and the creative community resolve color problems before its too late. This program empowers the creative community to avoid subjective evaluations by providing them with the tools and information they need to finally get control of their color on press. Attendees will learn how to use cost-effective quality control tools to verify results with printers capable of meeting accurate color control standards.
This Webinar will answer the questions:
- Why is my printed piece so far from what I expected?
- Can I really trust my proof to be produced accurately on press?
- What specific things should I look for during a "press okay"?
- Why is "accurate color" so subjective?
- How do I calibrate my monitor consistent with the proofing and print results?
- How do I hold my printer accountable for accurate color reproduction?
