InkWizards offer wide-format print colour management solution

InkWizards Profiling Solutions launched to support large format print colour management.

InkWizards Profiling Solutions has been launched to support UK printers in the delivery of high quality and consistent colour managed work.

The new venture has been established by Steve Chappell who is also Managing Director of ORIS Packaging Innovations (UK) Limited.

It will support the following digital printing operations looking to elevate the quality of their output whether they have one printer or a fleet of systems from an array of manufacturers:

• A4/A3
• Large Format
• Grand Format
• SuperWide
• Textile

He explains: “Over the years I have found the vast majority of digital printers, from A4 production right up to SuperWide, have little or no colour management in place. They frequently rely on ‘generic’ profiles for their media. Brands and client expectations have changed dramatically in recent time increasing the need for work to be very high quality, accurate and consistent. Our service is designed to support those operations looking to elevate their capabilities.”

Most digital printers will have systems that can meet these demands but they may need some support in the achieving them reliably and time after time.

Accurate profiling of media ensures print results are right first time. There is less trial and error and greater production efficiency. All of which delivers time and cost savings as well as work that brands love. There is also the added potential for further cost savings of up to 20% as a result of ink savings.

InkWizards Profiling Solutions offers:

• Initial simple audit/ fact finding exercise.
• Colour improvement with the creation of custom profiles for the specific printer.
• Service level options that allow customers to utilise InkWizards Profiling Solutions’ in house expertise. They ensure maximum uptime and production consistency with regular maintenance visits.

Chappell adds: “In these very difficult and testing times it has become increasingly important to be able to differentiate from the competition by offering higher quality results while also making savings. And InkWizards Profiling Solutions supports accurate profiling that is so cost effective that our services are almost self-funding. Other ink saving improvements include more image contrast, less ink show-through and greater abrasion resistance due to the lower amount of ink. There is also quicker and easier post-press finishing thanks to a reduction of ink cracking across folds.”
