GMG’s color management solution ensures that print results exactly match the color specified. Regardless of the print process or the substrate printed on. Experts of the print industry, creative agencies as well as brand owners from some of the biggest consumer brands count on GMG. They tirelessly perfect solutions in close collaboration with our customers to ensure their globally leading proofing- and color management software solutions remain the standard.
In order to accurately predict a print result it is paramount to use a reliable proofing solution. For all parties in a print production – clients, agencies, photographers, post-production, prepress specialists and printers – to communicate reliably, it is essential that they work within accepted standards. GMG ColorProof sets the standard for digital proofing globally.
In packaging printing, different printing technologies, various media types and printing conditions often lead to deviations from industry standards. This poses a challenge for the entire production process to efficiently achieve a consistent brand image. GMG OpenColor uses a spectral conversion technology at its core, which precisely predicts the overprinting of process and spot colors. The patented technology allows you to avoid lengthy correction loops on press before printing and makes creating custom profiles positively simple.
In packaging, print data processing in Adobe Photoshop often requires the replacement of a process color or even a channel extension of a CMYK image with one or more spot colors. Achieving the customer’s exact color specification using manual conversion can be very time-consuming even for the most experienced operators. GMG ColorPlugin achieves the required result with a few simple clicks: from accurate color conversion into the required color space, efficient under color removal (UCR/GCR) to the most flexible image separation.
Different printing conditions, substrates or printing standards around the world can make it difficult to ensure a consistent brand image. That’s why it’s crucial to introduce an automated step for color-accurate conversion. GMG ColorServer automatically converts RGB, CMYK and mixed data into an industry-standard or custom output color space using our industry-leading MX technology.
With GMG ProofControl digital proofs can be verified ensuring they comply with industry standards such as FOGRA standard. With this verification a digital proof is upgraded to a contract proof. Because the manual measurement of a color control strip is time intensive GMG’s automated solution is clearly a benefit. GMG ProofControl is not only accurate but also unbeatably efficient.
Reliable proof substrates are crucial for the production of contract proofs. The smallest production inconsistencies, differing surface structures or unstable drying behaviours of proof media can lead to visual differences in color appearance. Aside from proofing device, software and color profiles, the proof media plays a key role in achieving consistent proof results. This creates a demand for high-performance substrates that are available worldwide produced to unmatched quality standards.
When brands demand accurate color reproduction of their brand colors they use ink drawdowns during the approval process. Until now, these ink drawdowns, or color cards, were manually created – needless to say, that this was an extremely time-consuming process. GMG ColorCard is the digital innovation that automates the manual, labor-intense process using spectral data from the ink lab. It consistently produces precise color swatches for any spot color.
