With GMG ColorCard, leverage the capability of today’s high-performance inkjet printing solutions

GMG, the developer behind a suite of market-leading proofing and colour management tools, and Sun Chemical, the leader in inks for packaging, have collaborated to deliver a next-generation digital colour workflow system.

The new expedient, powered by GMG ColorCard technology, enables customers to digitise their colour workflows, delivering unprecedented value in print and quality control. Following close collaboration between the two industries , the GMG ColorCard solution has been integrated into Sun Chemical’s SunDigiProof service.

The SunDigiProof service, available as part of the SunColorBox toolkit, provides precise digital drawdowns on-site and on demand. With the addition of GMG ColorCard, SunDigiProof users can digitise and automate the production of precise digital colour matches based on digitally defined colours. This creates a more intuitive workflow, empowering printers to create and share colour matches faster while minimising the cost and effort of qualifying colours both internally and with their brand partners.

Marc Levine, director-business development, GMG said “Our partnership with Sun Chemical helps print businesses digitise their colour processes and better future-proof their businesses. We believe that digital colour specification and communication tools remove the friction around colour so that brands and their supply chain partners can produce colour with more efficiency, greater accuracy and higher consistency.”
With GMG ColorCard, ink drawdowns are simplified, requiring no special tools. They build expertise into the software, using spectral prediction technology found in GMG OpenColor. This increases the capability of today’s high-performance inkjet printing solutions, enabling users to create accurate, repeatable digital colour matches in under three minutes. 

“By bringing the expertise of GMG and Sun Chemical together, we’re delivering best-practice-in-a-box and helping our customers streamline their colour approval workflows.” said Levine.

GMG ColorCard integration further boosts the flexibility and convenience of SunDigiProof as it can be configured to meet a wide range of technical requirements. This ensures that there is always an ideal match for printers. By digitising manual processes and unlocking effortless in-house colour matching, the technology enables simple cost control alongside added flexibility.

Patrice Aurenty, business leader-colour management, Sun Chemical added “The goal of our partnership is to offer a best-in-class solution for automating colour swatch production and enhancing speed to market. We are delighted to accomplish this and more, with the added advantages of clearer colour communication and exemplary consistency, regardless of substrate or project complexity.”

“Our SunDigiProof service, part of the SunColorBox toolkit, makes colour consistency effortless. By plugging GMG ColorCard functionality into the mix, we’re offering new heights of productivity and efficiency for digital colour match creation.” said Aurenty.
