Company to provide workflow color-management solutions
Flint Ink, the Ann Arbor, MI, ink manufacturer,
has launched Progressive Color
Media LLC, a company whose goal is to
provide to printers, designers, publishers,
and others a range of workflow color-management
solutions integrating hardware,
software, and services.
"Color management of today involves
many participants, from printers to brand
owners, working in multiple locations with
different systems and technologies," says
Diane Watt, president of the new company.
"Progressive Color Media helps customers
simplify processes and harmonize
disparate systems. As a result, customers
can have greater confidence in the accuracy,
reproducibility, and efficient production
of printed results."
Specifically, Progressive Color Media is
offering three major groups of solutions:
<"?>Field service and support: offers a
detailed analysis of a customer's workflow
and shows how to take its workflow
process to the next level.
<"?>Strategic consulting: takes the practical
knowledge garnered from field service
and support and integrates it to form a
comprehensive color-management plan,
with a focus on the long term.
<"?>Instrument verification: checks and
verifies all color instruments currently on
site ("over 20% of instruments we survey
fail to meet acceptable measurement
standards"), makes recommendations for
repair, service, and/or replacement. (Progressive Color Media: www.procolormedia.com)
