Color Management

The science of accurate color reproduction is the foundation upon which Spectragraphic®, Inc. has built its reputation. Our trained color professionals, combine their years of experience with the latest in technology.

Every graphic project can benefit from a production environment equipped with progressive color management systems which produce quality results.

The ultimate expression of quality is a performance of uncompromising precision. This is achieved with System Spectra®, a complete press profiling color control system, developed by Spectragraphic®, Inc. to ensure that previously approved color standards are consistently matched on the final printed product.

System Spectra® provides the correct aim points to predictably measure and adjust for perfect color reproduction. The results are faster press make-ready times, less paper waste and an improved color reproduction consistency throughout the press run.

In conjunction with System Spectra®, all other segments of manufacturing maintain specific quality control aim points, designed to predict the results for each particular press, paper and ink characteristic of the final print run. Press sheets are consistently monitored throughout the press run, via a sheet scanner which checks for color consistency and quality.

Spectragraphic®, Inc. endeavors to make your printed image look better than the original. Our Quality Control Personnel, many of whom have multiple years of scanning experience, evaluate the characteristics of each original to be scanned. Technical factors are thoroughly controlled by seasoned craftspeople who possess a thorough knowledge of the printing trade. Our color workstations utilize the most pre-eminent software currently available, combined with the most efficient image data processing equipment.
