Mastering multicolor production

The trend toward digital printing in packaging production is progressing rapidly. The multicolor solution from GMG ensures not only the smooth integration of digital systems in conventional environments but also guarantees consistent results across all systems.

Efficient pressroom management thanks to reliable proofing

Packaging printers experience more pressure on deadlines than ever. And the highest quality must be delivered in the shortest possible time, which means there is no time for multiple rounds of corrections at the proofing stage. Perfect conditions for GMG proofing. With exact predictions of the printing results and reliable handling of spot colors, makeready times, and machine downtimes are minimal.

Color-accurate prototypes for a reliable approval process

It’s much more than just an impression of the final product – with the award-winning solution from GMG, packaging mockups can have unmatched color accuracy. This color reliability and accuracy simplifies production greatly as there are no more misunderstandings, and expectations are clear. An essential part of this solution is the GMG Calibration Creation Wizard. It is a smart tool that won the Innovation Award at Labelexpo Europe 2019.

Digital ink drawdowns

This new solution from GMG creates reliable color references from customer spectral data. The visualization of an individually designed ink recipe with the help of the digitally produced color card revolutionizes the dialogue between ink lab, printer, and client. Time-consuming color approval rounds reduce, and the tolerances agreed before print. This improved process reliability not only increases efficiency in the ink lab but also on the printing press.

Sophisticated image preparation in prepress

Achieving the best possible results in image processing using Adobe Photoshop often relies entirely on the experience of the operator. Changes affecting individual color channels, for example, are usually demanding, very time-consuming, and often require several proof steps. A smart tool can help: with reliable soft-proofing function and profiling from GMG.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
