GMG ColorProof for the HP DesignJet Z9+ is now available.

GMG, known worldwide for its proofing and color management, has come up with a proofing solution specifically created for HP Indigo users. The application may surprise: proofing for digital printing. Until now, producing press proofs on the Indigo is a fairly common process. However, it’s costly to tie up the HP Indigo for proofing. A ‘real’ proofer that, in conjunction with GMG ColorProof, shows exactly what will happen on press. It’s not just reliable but also extremely cost-efficient. 

“The proofing solution from GMG is by far the better solution compared to the proof-on-press strategy,” emphasizes Birgit Plautz, manager of Technical Services at GMG Americas. “Together with our partners from HP, we have asked various users in the US for their assessment” Plautz adds, “and everyone agrees the excellent HP Indigo should do exactly what it was made for: production printing.”

“We know precisely how the end result will look without needing to operate the full press” confirms George Hlad of Resource Label.

In addition to the precise predictability of GMG ColorProof, the primary focus lies in the cost-effectiveness of the solution. The numbers stack up: in just a single proof, the cost difference between proofing on the HP Indigo versus the HP DesignJet with GMG ColorProof can extend into hundreds of Euros — and most companies proof dozens of jobs per month. 

GMG has developed a cost calculator illustrating the potential cost savings, making it straightforward to establish expected savings during consultation meetings. The calculator also allows for customers to input their own values in order to reflect their particular machine and production costs, which can vary from one company to another.

“GMG is renowned for its high-quality proofing solutions,” said Gershon Alon, head of Software Solutions at HP Indigo. “Our customers are already enjoying savings in production time and materials with GMG off-press proofing, and now they can use the HP DesignJet Z9+ for proofing. HP Indigo continues to work with GMG to maximize production efficiency and reduce TCO of our joint customers”.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
