  • How Good is "Good Enough?" - Tolerances for Color Matching

    If you are attending SGIA Expo 2018 next month in Las Vegas then consider attending my session How Good is "Good Enough?"
    This hour long session delves into how rate or grade color matching. Most printing businesses do not have insight into how well they are matching brand/spot colors or reference print conditions like GRACoL or SWOP. This session will address ways to quantify a color match to have a consistent quality deliverable.

    Tickets are required for this session which can be purchased the day of the event.
