Sun Chemical and GMG Color tee up for colour management

Sun Chemical, a member of the DIC Group, is partnering with GMG Color to create a new digital drawdown solution for colour swatch production for customers.

GMG Color is an industry leader in colour management technology.

Under the arrangement, the GMG ColorCard will be available globally as part of the SunDigiProof service, available within Sun Chemical’s SunColorBox.

Creating colour swatches can be time-consuming. Sun Chemical says its SunDigiProof Seine application replaces this manual component through the creation of a digitally printed version of the same standard, with increased reliability and colour consistency.

With the addition of the GMG ColorCard application, the SunDigiProof solution now offers even greater levels of flexibility and convenience.

Sun Chemical says the SunDigiProof solution is available to fit customers’ technical and price point requirements giving supply chain partners faster and more productive ways to work that reduce cost, drive innovation, and provide flexibility.

Sun Chemical business leader Patrice Aurenty said, “This partnership continues to build on our innovative set of tools within the SunColorBox.

“By partnering with GMG Color, Sun Chemical now offers a best-in-class solution to help customers automate colour swatch production, communication, reduce lead times, improve colour consistency, and get to market faster.”

Colour communication

GMG Color director of business development, Marc Levine, said punctual and precise colour communication is critical for the packaging supply chain.

“We believe that GMG ColorCard is the next evolutionary step in communicating colour expectations quickly and accurately. Our partnership with Sun Chemical illustrates that digital drawdowns are the new best practice for colour communication. Through this partnership, Sun Chemical customers now have a faster, more accurate way to specify colour and drive colour success,” he said.

With GMG ColorCard, users can easily automate color swatch production at Sun Chemical colour centres using global colour references for quicker turnaround of colour swatches. The software is highly intuitive, and can be operated by anyone, regardless of staff availability.

Sun Chemical says the partnership enables customers to print accurate digital drawdowns at their own locations, giving them the power to create colour swatches on demand and removing time, effort and shipping costs from the colour communication, matching and approval processes.
