Good points all. As a teaching, trying to explain prepress to design students, it's always fun to show them the kinds of things that print can do that they can't do on their computer screen. Whether it's out-of-gamut spot colors like metallics or florescents, to fancy finishes like die cuts, folds, embossing, foils, varnishes and finishes, it's a revelation to these young people that there are design elements beyond what they can see and do on a computer.

As a former typesetter, of course, there's a typo in the sixth word. It should be teacher.

Frank:
The Print Delivers seminar that Think Patented co-hosted with The Print Council is part of a national seminar series produced by The Print Council and our sponsors. We have presented in 10 cities---including NYC, Dallas, Chicago, Minneapolis---with more to come this year in LA, Seattle, etc.

Our expert presenters demonstrate what print can do for media and marketing specifiers through case studies and relevant research from Print in the Mix. They showcase how print integrates with digital/online media and explain the facts about the sustainability of paper and print.

The Print Council and our sponsors work hard to tell the story of the effectiveness of print by supporting Print in the Mix clearinghouse, presenting the Print Delivers seminars, developing print collateral for the print community.

It has always been our mission to provide tools to print providers and to reach out to media and marketing specialists who make media buy decisions to be sure they have the information they need to keep print front and center...and in the mix.

We hope that you will come to one of the Print Delivers events soon!

Joanne Vinyard
Director, The Print Council

What Color is Consistent?

Published: January 20, 2017

Color management works, and it has been available to designers and printers for more than 25 years. Why then do we still make mistakes in color reproduction? Shoshana Burgett of X-Rite Pantone notes that CM has to be understood as something more than calibrating a monitor. It is a set of steps, processes, and tools that must be in place across the entire production workflow, always with monitoring for continuous improvement. Designers who want color to be consistent in all the channels they are now responsible for can find the help they need in CM, Burgett says.
