“We like to think of ourselves as a successful wide format printer. But every time the color wasn’t quite what the customer wanted, everything had to stop until our color expert was free to create new profiles. It takes ages to build new profiles. That extra time was eating into my profit margins – until we started using PrintFactory software…”

PRINTFACTORY | WIDE FORMAT WORKFLOW SOFTWARE

Many printers use the profiles that either came with a printer, or were supplied by a media manufacturer. And, let’s be honest, those ‘canned’ profiles may do a reasonable job … just as long as you’re using exactly the right paper and ink, the right printer driver, and you’ve double-checked all the settings for which the profile was intended. But life’s not like that.

Even canned ICC profiles don’t account for these variables. And while ICCs are intended to be generic, there’s really no such thing. So, when you get your color expert to create new, bespoke profiles for your unique set-up – taking that person off a job, putting someone else on it – you’re wasting time, it’s costing money, and everything comes to a halt. PrintFactory is the answer.

PrintFactory turns your whole workforce into a team of profile-ninjas.

Color experts are worth their weight in gold. But with PrintFactory, you don’t need color experts to be on hand all the time, to get perfect color profiles. Our workflow software turns your whole team into profile-ninjas. Anyone can create perfect new profiles in just 3 clicks and maintain the great work your color experts have already done. Here’s how it works…

LET’S GET TECHNICAL

It’s all about choosing workflow software that uses device-link profiles, and has in-built wizards, making them easy for anyone to create. Device-link profiling transforms color from one color space to another. In the simplest of terms, our device-link profiles ensure normalised printing: directly converting from one color space to another. They don’t work through an intermediary area (CIEL*A*B*). Instead, they preserve color separation through direct CMYK-to-CMYK conversions. Rather than being converted to CIEL*A*B and back, this ‘normalised’ printing means that every channel’s values stay the same – ensuring consistency and accuracy.

It all happens behind the scenes. What’s more, because our software’s device-link profiles work on an iterative basis (as jobs are getting processed, the software chooses the right values to reflect exactly what’s happening with stock and substrate changes, environmental conditions, and even wear and tear) … you can be sure of printing exactly the same colour on every printer, every time. No extra costs involved.

EVERYONE CAN CREATE COLOR PROFILES QUICKLY AND EASILY

Getting those device-link profiles set up is easy. Our Calibrator turns your whole team into profile-ninjas. And as soon as those device-link profiles have been created, the result can be frozen into what we call ‘a golden state’ – so you can be sure of producing the same quality and same color across multiple printers, every time, even after a significant amount of time has passed.
