pressSIGN-Pro is a G7® Certified System that measures, controls, monitors and evaluates the colour printing process for litho, digital, flexo and gravure.
pressSIGN-Pro features a complete set of analysis tools to improve press and operator performance identifying issues of both quality and wastage.
Each pressSIGN-Pro installation includes the pressSIGN-Pro server, pressSIGN-Pro client, a pressSIGN-Trends client and pressSIGN-Mobile client. Additional clients can be purchased.
G7 has become the de facto methodology for attaining consistent color results. But all too ofter, the G7 qualification run is a once-a-year event rarely duplicated during daily production. PressSIGN is a G7 certified system that enables printers to attain and maintain G7 on every print job and no need for wasteful fingerprint runs. Track G7 gray balance on every job. Create NPDC gray balance curves and import them into every rip and workflow on the planet. Make G7 a daily reality, not a once-a-year special event.
PressSIGN scores both CMYK and spot colors for all printing conditions, including solid ink LAB values, TVI, Gray Balance, Overprint and more.

The first installment of this series showed why offset printing using FM screening cannot completely match proofs based on a conventional AM-based GRACoL proof. The mismatch can’t be fixed with curves, but it can be resolved with device-link profiles. We … Continue reading
Not all printers love standards: Some like to think that they already print “beyond” the standards; others feel that printing to standards is an unnecessary burden that gets in the way of production. Here’s why printing and buying to standards … Continue reading

Printing seems like a world apart from the competitive world of NASCAR racing, but a recent conversation with a friend convinced me that the two have something very surprising in common. My friend works in the quality control department … Continue reading
It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory. ~W. Edwards Deming To those of us who enjoy reading technical articles, or attending technical conferences, the idea of change is bracing. We embrace change, and we like technology. We … Continue reading
A solar powered printing press still sounds futuristic, and probably little impractical, but in fact a working solar press was demonstrated back in the ’80s…..the 1880′s. Abel Pifre demonstrated his press in 1882 and used sunlight concentrated using an 11 … Continue reading
Every once in a while I get the feeling that the print industry’s ability to think clearly is declining along with its market share. Printers with shrinking pockets put hard-to-find resources into expensive technological fixes in the hope that with … Continue reading
