Importance of Colour Accuracy in Printing

Redefining Colour Accuracy in Production Printing

Getting the colours on printed materials right is paramount for production printing, as colours are integral to branding. In fact, presenting colours consistently across all modes (packaging, promotional materials, labels, etc.) can improve brand recognition by 80%.

Small and large businesses dedicate time, effort, and money to develop a cohesive colour identity to stand out in today’s increasingly competitive market. As such, maintaining consistent colours with pinpoint accuracy across collaterals is strategically vital for brand recognition and loyalty.

Colour Control with Advanced Digital Systems

Achieving colour consistency in production printing can often be challenging. There is a wide variety of printing processes, inks, and substrates, not to mention the need to calibrate printers for varying paper types and mass quantities.

Therefore, it is highly beneficial for printing companies to invest in quality digital printing equipment to accelerate business growth. Whether you are involved in commercial or in-house printing, Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C14000 and C12000 are designed with top-notch IQ-501 technology for unrivalled colour accuracy. These award-winning production printers are a fantastic addition to any printing company’s arsenal for three core reasons:
