ColorMark Improves Workflow with Purchase of Prinergy Workflow and KODAK Approval XP Proofing
Press release from the issuing company
DALLAS, Texas - MAY 15, 2007 - Color Control Network (CCN) announces that ColorMark is the first printer in the U.S. having the capability to carry out, in-house, the complete Color Control Network process. The acquisition of a Kodak Prinergy workflow and a Kodak Approval proofing system closes the circle in this new proficiency.
Before these recent acquisitions, ColorMark outsourced the proofing and processing of PDF files to be used with the CCN process. By acquiring the Approval and Prinergy ColorMark puts a unified process in-house that improves job turn-around time and lowers its production cost. Such tight in-house control allows ColorMark to meet the unique demands of their customers and to precisely account for more printing variables leading to unprecedented color predictability on press.
ColorMark, a DFW area printer was the printer-research-site during development of Color Control Network’s patented technology. This evolved into their becoming the test-site for the prototype system and then progressed into their being the first adopter of the final release of the system. With 5 years experience in using the CCN system, ColorMark has produced over 200 jobs for large corporate buyers and is proud to report that each undertaking has ended with a very happy customer. Typically running at densities of 1.95, 1.95, 1.40, 2.00 / C, M, Y, K, respectively, CCN provides for intense color and contrast that customers perceive as added marketing value in their printed pieces.
“We are very pleased to offer the entire CCN system in-house and believe that this is a great addition to our list of quality oriented services. Altogether, the combination of CCN and Kodak have proven to be a great investment”, says Dave Hudson, president of ColorMark, L.C.
