Process Controls Primer

Item #:
Printers have always had to deal with issues such as “Why is the color so inconsistent on these printed sheets?” and, “The color on the press sheet doesn’t match the proof.”
However, the only way to reproduce color more accurately and consistently is by applying process controls.

The chapters in this Process Controls Primer break down the various production steps so you may analyze your production workflow and identify problem areas and their causes.

By making the processes, tools, and measurements defined here a part of your workflow, you will gain more control of the entire color reproduction process.
