Challenging The Status Quo At This Year’s ISA Sign Expo 2018ISA Sign Expo continues to be a hotbed of innovation, supporting the sign and graphics industry in adopting new ways of working to keep up with the demand for even bigger formats and enhanced quality of print jobs.
In keeping with the ‘dare to be different’ theme at this year’s ISA Sign Expo Exhibiting, we were there with our US partner and distributor, GMG Americas, to challenge the wide-format print industry to question the norm when it comes to color management.
The event provided us with a great opportunity to explore the most common color management challenges that are getting in the way of wide-format print shops becoming more productive and profitable and demonstrate how PrintFactory can support the industry overcome these frustrations.
Typically, 35% of the time on a print job is spent getting ‘print-ready’ and 20% on color management. Effective color management requires each printer to produce the same results within set parameters. If printer settings are inconsistent, color management can become guesswork with operators required to check each individual job and tweak color profiles across devices. This not only wastes valuable time, but can also lead to inconsistent color reproduction and results that do not meet brand or print standards.
Therefore, effective color management software is a key factor to a shop’s success, and improved color consistency across the output is the fastest road to saving ink, media and, in turn, money. By selecting software that is better suited towards the needs of your business, print shops can quickly uncover inefficiencies and enjoy smarter, faster ways of working. Our new video explores the most common hidden inefficiencies that affect the color management workflow.
We also announced the release of our latest software update, PrintFactory V6 at the show. This new update empowers print shops with the potential to leverage all the benefits that an automated workflow can bring, and delivers more robust solutions to ongoing color management and quality assurance challenges.

The ISA Sign Expo continues to be a hotbed of innovation, supporting the sign and graphics industry in adopting new ways of working to keep up with the demand for even bigger formats and enhanced quality of print jobs.
