UXBRIDGE, U.K., April 27, 2012 – Printers competing for profitable colour jobs are using Xerox’s Confident Colour programme to ensure the finished product not only meets customers’ demands but generates repeat business.
Confident Colour takes the uncertainty out of colour management, so repeatable, consistent colour can be achieved quickly and easily. Realising this can’t be done with technology alone, the programme includes consulting, business development, partner services and custom solutions.
“As print professionals deal with different printing devices, usually in the same plant, the need for colour consistency is critical. Xerox has faced this challenge and brought reliable colour printing into the 21st century,” said Frank Romano, RIT Professor Emeritus.
Automation Essential to Colour Success
On the technology front, Xerox’s digital presses are the only ones that automate all three major steps in the colour management process: calibration, profiling and hitting spot colours.
Calibration and profiling are managed with Xerox’s Automated Colour Quality Suite (ACQS), which maintains colour precision for all applications, including marketing collateral, brochures and direct mail pieces. Automation not only saves time but ensures colour consistency on every job and across multiple print engines.
REAL Digital International relies on Xerox’s technology to guarantee colour consistency, shorter production times and lower costs.
“With the matte dry ink, the iGen4® EXP presses have allowed us to build a leading market share based on superlative colour,” said David Laybourne, managing director, REAL Digital International. “With these presses, we know the colour quality will be the same from one sheet to 50,000 sheets. The confidence that instils in our customers is very important.”

For Mimic Print & Media Services, Xerox’s Confident Colour helped triple their print volume while delivering consistent colour quality on applications such as corporate logos and brochures. The company has also reduced production times – in some cases turning jobs in less than 24 hours.
“Xerox’s colour consulting team provided the assistance we needed. The training absolutely gave us a competitive advantage,” said Laura Ambrozic, president, Mimic Print & Media Services. “I don’t believe there’s another colour management consultant organisation available that can touch Xerox.”
