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.
