Graphika collaborates with Techkon to launch ColorSuite press-to-proof matching solution

Graphika Print Solutions (North York, Ontario), a leading software company that develops cloud-based solutions for the print and graphic communications industry, is releasing ColorSuite, its award-winning press-to-proof matching solution, at the 2019 Graphics Canada tradeshow at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario April 11-13 in booth 5061 (with a special seminar set for April 11 at 11 am). Utilizing machine learning and cloud computing, ColorSuite offers an innovative and convenient press characterization process using a small colour target that can be included on production runs.

ColorSuite is a web-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that uses device link profiles to make press output efficiently match a printer’s proof standards. This results in reduced make-ready times, improved colour consistency job to job, and a much better customer experience by making proof matching simple. The ColorSuite target eliminates the need for dedicated characterization runs while making profiling with multiple media or presses much easier. ColorSuite can integrate into any print workflow and enables printers to achieve a stable press condition. The end result is more accurate and consistent colour reproduction on a daily basis.

Graphika Print Solutions collaborated with Techkon to release ColorSuite. ColorSuite utilizes Techkon’s SpectroDrive scanner over the cloud to assure that high quality measurements are achieved. Measurements from the Techkon device ensure that ColorSuite produces accurate colour predictions from press.
