Perth-based printer Scott Print has achieved ISO colour certification for all of its colour production, offset and digital.
According to the company, it is the first in the A/NZ market to receive the Mellow Colour Proficient Printer for ISO 12647-2:2013 (including ISO 12647-8:2012) certification from Colour Graphic Services.
Colour Graphic Services colour doctor David Crowther said, “The original certification was one year ago, but of course, any standard is only as good as the upkeep of it via auditing and I am delighted to say that Scott Print has passed its second audit with flying colours.
“It is a significant achievement since both digital and offset/CtP output devices need to be maintained to ISO 12647 colour standard day-in, day-out.
“Not only this but Scott Print uses both digital liquid toner (HP Indigo) and dry toner (Xerox), and these lay down images in different ways. Add to that the CtP/Offset variance and controlling colour across eight devices is a challenge for the world’s best – and Scott Print certainly falls into this category.”
Scott Print’s production comprises of a HP Indigo 5000 SRA3 digital colour press, a Fuji Xerox Iridesse SRA3 digital colour press, two Fuji Xerox Colour 1000i A3 digital printers, a Komori HUV GL840 B1 offset press, a Komori LS 629 B2+ offset press, a Screen PlateRite 8900S CtP, in addition to Prinergy workflow and two seats of Mellow Colour PrintSpec, Techkon SpectroDens Premium and SpectroPlate for measurement, and Just Normlicht viewing.
“I’d like to congratulate the colour management team headed by Doug Henderson, Adriano Piccaluga in offset and Danilo Bernini in digital, for their diligence and professionalism in learning and maintaining the ISO standard across all devices and, of course, the management of John and Tim Scott for their faith and perseverance in world-best practice of print colour management,” Crowther added.
