Press release from the issuing company
Boston (Seybold), April 10, 2001 – X-Rite, Incorporated (NASDAQ/NMS: XRIT), a leading global provider of technology solutions that measure color, light and shape, today unleashed its 2001 Printing & Digital Imaging Instrument Trade-Up Promotional Program. X-Rite is now offering unique trade-up programs that provide users of previous generations of X-Rite equipment, as well as owners of competitive instruments, credit toward the purchase of X-Rite’s latest solutions for color measurement control.
“The X-Rite 2000 Trade-up Program gives our customers the opportunity to improve their color measurement process at a fraction of the price. We’ve designed a unique trade-up offer for virtually everyone in digital imaging through prepress and press,” said Bill Owens, product manager, Printing & Digital Imaging The Americas. “The program also answers the numerous requests for competitive trade-in opportunities.”
For Graphic Designers and Prepress Professionals
X-Rite is offering its trade-up program for X-Rite Colortron users through June 29. This program is designed to offer Colortron users a cost-effective way to move to the next level with more sophisticated professional color measurement instruments. X-Rite is offering bundles that meet differing user needs. One bundle includes a Monitor Optimizer system (the most accurate solution available for maintaining consistent color on monitors) and Digital Swatchbook. The second bundle option includes a Monitor Optimizer and DTP41 Autoscan Spectrodensitometer. The bundled prices represent a 15% savings off MSRP if purchased separately. Trade-up credit varies based on the Colortron Model series.
