Onyx Graphics, Inc., a market leader in wide-format and grand-format RIP and print workflow software, has developed ColorCheck, a process control toolset for color accuracy, consistency, and conformance to standards such as G7 and FOGRA. ColorCheck was introduced in May 2018 with ONYX 18.

Bryan Manwaring, director of product marketing at Onyx Graphics said,“ColorCheck represents so much more than ensuring superior output that can be proven to print buyers. We’re seeing ColorCheck effectively stop the need for reworks from bad prints.”

“ColorCheck literally saved us during a time-sensitive print job for one of our national customers,” said Leonard Moore, president and chief executive officer of Canada-based Signboom. “We ordered new media to meet the deadline on a two-part print run, and ColorCheck caught the difference in white-point, saving us thousands in wasted ink and media from wrong prints. Color accuracy and consistency is incredibly important to our customers and us. Now we won’t print without ColorCheck.”

ColorCheck is the industry toolset for color accuracy, consistency, and conformance to standards that can be validated to print buyers. It provides output consistency before printing, and have site-wide control of print output quality across devices for all media profiles. In addition, in-product indicators reduce waste and save both ink and media with alerts built into the RIP-Queue interface, notifying the user when to perform printer maintenance.

ColorCheck is part of ONYX 18 software, and is an integrated module in ONYX Thrive, accessible with an ONYX Advantage Gold subscription. Current ONYX users can request a key update and all other customers can gain access through a license purchase. The ONYX Advantage subscription program gives ONYX software users a quick and easy way to keep their software current and secure their investment.

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.
