X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today reported that Finnish company Pyroll Packages is the first flexographic printer worldwide to achieve PANTONE Certified Printer status. The initial certification audit was conducted at the company’s location at Joensuu, one of ten locations across the country. Pyroll plans to continue this program in 2018. The certification was carried out by X-Rite Solutions Architect Mark Gundlach and International Technical Support and Application Expert Maxim Siniak together with Certified Pantone Partner and packaging repro house Flexolahti Oy and X-Rite dealer KTA Oy.
In the sign and display graphics business, as in many other segments of the printing industry, shorter runs and reduced cycle times can stress even the most efficient wide format printing operations. By implementing a colour-managed RIP-to-roll (or RIP-to-rigid media) workflow, these operations can ensure that colour is right the first time and every time to help speed work through the shop and meet colour expectations.
