SAN JOSE, CA -- December 2, 2004 -- ColorManagement.com will celebrate its first birthday by hosting the Monday evening cocktail reception on December 6 at the GATF Color Management Conference in Phoenix - where the web site made its debut during a launch party last year. ColorManagement.com will also be staffing a table at the resource fair during the conference, from Sunday through Tuesday. ColorManagement.com is managed by Lida Jalali Marschke, who also operates a number of other color management related organizations, including Color Management Distribution and The Color Management Group.
Last year, Lida Jalali Marschke and Dan Reid, founder of Renaissance Photographic Imaging and a veteran trainer and installer of color management products, launched ColorManagement.com. The web site is a portal for news, information, support, and sales of color management technologies for consumers and graphic professionals. The site provides resources such as events, training opportunities, and over 400 color management items available for sale. Unlike other eCommerce stores, ColorManagement.com products can be installed by local 'certified' professionals available from the site's exclusive ColorManagement.com consultant directory. ColorManagement.com consultants have a proven success record and can resolve the most sophisticated workflows and color management problems. The site currently receives an average of 10,000 hits per month.
ColorManagement.com is the latest color management venture of Lida Jalali Marschke, who has over twenty years' experience in the graphic arts industry. Her other color management enterprises include:
