GMG has announced that GMG ColorCard has won a 2020 Printing United Alliance Product of the Year award in the Software—Color Enhancement category. This GMG ColorCard award joins the 2020 InterTech Technology Award and the 2020 Label Industry Global Award for Innovation for companies with up to 300 employees.
For non-output categories, Product of the Year entries were scored by a panel of judges, all experts within their respective realm of the printing industry. The diverse group of judges worked to identify the best products, many submitted in highly saturated categories.
Brands need to know how well their colors will match on press because different substrates and printing processes require different ink recipes to achieve the same brand color. Instead of ink drawdowns GMG ColorCard is a cloud-based software solution to digitally create and print color cards as visual ink color references based on spectral technology. It produces cards with just a few clicks in about three minutes, has digital precision and repeatability, and does not require special expertise.
“When GMG develops new products, we always looks for new, influential applications where we can make life easier for anyone in the graphics production supply chain. What is exciting for us is that GMG ColorCard has now received honors from three different industry ’groups’, with focus in labels, general print, and the Product of the Year Award, Software—Color Enhancement, with a legacy in digital print,” comments Rainer Schmitt, GMG head of strategy and product management. “We are happy, once again, that GMG ColorCard is recognized for digitizing the color workflow in the ink kitchen, making it faster, more repeatable, and very economical.”
