Sydney businesses Access Print and Hannanprint go for ISO 12647 with Kayell

Access Print Solutions, based in the Sydney suburb of Granville, attained its ISO 12647-2 certification as it tightens up its productivity and waste reduction.

Kayell Australia’s colour specialist Luke Wooldridge supervised Access Print through its ‘ISO Printer of Australia and New Zealand’ program.

The printer’s colour-matching ability was put to the test in an audit that included evaluating monitor calibration, lighting conditions, proofing, plate-making and a print run of 2,000 impressions.

Director Norbert D’Souza said ISO accreditation was becoming increasingly important for printers.

“More print buyers are asking for ISO-compliant printed product so we felt it was important for our current and future customers to prove our ability to produce print and proofs to this standard,” he said.

“The ISO process has allowed us to quickly match our proofs and we have managed to reduce waste and increase productivity.

Meanwhile, Wooldridge also worked with IPMG to recertify Hannanprint’s Sydney site to the Fogra PSO standard.

Hannanprint is one of only three local heatset wed printers to gain the standard – and all three are owned by IPMG. It joins a select group of 33 heatset web printers around the world to have secured the standard.

Hannanprint managing director Tony Dedda said: “I am very proud of the effort and dedication of our people in achieving this certification. It underpins our aim to provide our customers with the highest standard in print quality.”
