Packaging Services Industries understands the importance of printing the correct color. We utilize the most current software and equipment to ensure color consistency from press run to press run.
The process begins with a target color supplied by the customer. We work closely with our ink vendor determining the press the job will print on, reviewing artwork to determine sequence, providing anilox configurations and substrate. All are essential when developing or predicting how the color will print prior to ever going to press.
Once the color has been matched and the proof has been approved, we are provided an electronic version of the approved color. We load that standard into our system and will measure against that standard on all future runs. The equipment used and the software packages installed are in alignment with our ink vendor. This not only speeds our process up, but also ensures accurate color from beginning to end.
An ink formula, unique to the job, is then used to blend ink on-site. We have an ink kitchen that not only allows us to react quickly to our customer’s needs, but also customize each batch of ink dispensed. The ink kitchen also enables PSI to make the correct color adjustments (if needed), quickly and accurately. The use of a spectrophotometer and color formulation software is used to read and monitor color throughout the press run.
