Color is always important to the client and they expect the color they selected to appear on the corrugated container. Color failure in the pressroom results in sales loss or spoilage for the customer.

This hands-on course allows participants to mix and match ink colors in the lab and then demonstrate their comprehension and abilities on press.  Real world application allows for the retention of material and the ability to implement knowledge using a deliberate and efficient process when you return to your facility.

Apply learned color theories in an environment that provides the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge.

Learning Outcomes:

Standardization and Equipment Utilization/Acquisition; Accurate Establishment of Ink Supplier and Pressroom Expectations; Ability to Create Color Control Procedures; Understanding Color Variation Tolerances; Accurate Data Interpretation to Create Color Variation Corrections
