Software Media & Inks



  • Starting from June 15, 2022, users will be able to update their RIP to access a range of new features designed to increase performance, output quality, and productivity.

    French software creator Caldera has announced the release of the latest update of its award-winning RIP program, CalderaRIP Version 15.1. Starting from June 15, 2022, users will be able to update their RIP to access a range of new features designed to increase performance, output quality, and productivity.

    Highlights of this new update include an improved nesting algorithm, CalderaJobs’ compatibility with Windows, and four exclusive features for CalderaCare subscribers. In addition, this update supports the cutters of French manufacturer VERSO, and more than 42 new Print & Cut drivers have been added to the V15.1 ISO.

    Along with Version 15.1, the company is also releasing version 1.14 of CalderaDock, the toolbox to manage the license and installation of all Caldera solutions. With this new version, users can login to their WorkSpace account directly from CalderaDock to access their information. Production administrators will also appreciate the increased flexibility, security, and control during the installation process.

    According to Arnaud Fabre, Head of Product at Caldera, “Giving our customers the tools to optimize their production costs and grow their printshop remains one of our top priorities.”

    The new features and improvements included in Version 15.1 contribute to making it the most comprehensive, flexible, and powerful RIP solution on the market. CalderaJobs has been improved, making it the perfect tool for print operators whose role is to send ripped jobs to the printers, and for production managers who need to balance the workload or check the connectivity and statuses of the fleet. Users can drive and manage their fleet of printers from any of their workstations, including those running on Windows devices. For more flexibility, they can filter their RIP stations to focus on a subpart of the fleet. The nesting algorithm in Compose and Nest-O-Matik modules has also been improved to help operators reduce media waste.

    Along with these enhancements to the RIP software, Version 15.1 comes with new exclusive features for CalderaCare subscribers, including the possibility to submit multi-page PDF files with different cut contours directly to CalderaRIP. Reducing the number of files to handle guarantees a more efficient workflow, with valuable time-savings and fewer manual errors. To speed up textile printing operations, the new "Use Printer S&R” option makes the ripping process faster when producing repeated patterns.

    CalderaCare subscribers also benefit from two additional features to streamline their cutting operations. With Image Step&Repeat in VisualCut, CalderaRIP groups the shapes by images and builds optimized rows to streamline the cutting head path— which increases cutting speed and accuracy. In addition, both VisualCut & GrandCut come with a new option to streamline two-steps workflow such as sublimation and lamination requiring rolling and unrolling. In just one click, users can rotate jobs by 180° to save time and have their jobs ready for cutting right after printing, without additional manipulation.

    Sébastien Hanssens, VP Marketing & Operations says, “Version 15.1 continues our 30-year long tradition of putting our customer’s needs at the heart of our innovations. Each new update aims to push their business forward and help them face the new challenges of the digital printing industry.”

  • ASLAN, developer and manufacturer of self-adhesive films, is expanding its portfolio of digital printing media with another specialty film: MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05 is a white, glossy self-adhesive film that sticks securely even to the most difficult surfaces and under the toughest conditions.

    Difficult substrates

    The core element of MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05 is the solvent gas and lubricating oil resistant adhesive formula. It is this that makes the film adhere to surfaces which would usually be so problematic. Examples of this are applications on plywood panels of box trailers, often equipped with a dirt-repellent surface, construction, agricultural and industrial machines subject to extreme dirt and mechanical stress, petrol pumps, powder-coated surfaces and low-energy substrates, ABS plastics, Moto-Cross vehicles and caravans/campers.

    The characteristic

    MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05 perfectly supplements the UltraTack films DFP 06, 07 and 08, which are already established on the market. It is also suitable for bonding on rough surfaces inside and outside. Special benefits of note: It can be attached to flat or slightly curved surfaces from temperatures as low as -10° C – and it lasts up to 7 years outdoors. The polymer film can be printed with solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV curable inks, as well as screen printing inks.

    June 14 2022

    PacPrint, running from 28th June to 1st July at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, will see an important new release from Colour Graphic Services, David Crowther’s specialist colour quality certification, training and technology supply company.

    With the increasing demand for extended gamut colour reproduction across all disciplines – offset, digital, flexo, gravure and photography – the need for precise control of seven and eight colour ink sets becomes paramount. This is particularly true for labels and packaging, where colours such as orange, green and violet are added to the standard CMYK process colour combination. This is commonly referred to as ‘CMYK+X, or ‘extended gamut print.’

    As a result, Colour Graphic Services announces that it is now a local Australia-New Zealand dealer for CGS-ORIS.Established in 1985, CGS-ORIS (also known as CGS Publishing Technologies), is a global leader in colour management and was instrumental in enabling the change from expensive analogue-chemical proofing to low-cost digital using Epson wide format printers, which Crowther was also involved with in the early 2000s.

    X GAMUT is a fully automated colour management software for extended gamut colour printing on digital and conventional presses. Spot and special colours can be accurately reproduced by using a standard fixed 7 or 8 colour ink set (CMYK+X). Often, orange, green, and violet are added to CMYK but other, such as Screen’s vibrant blue for its label presses, are possible.

    One big advantage of CMYK+X one-pass printing is that there is no need for special colour ink mixes. This streamlines the production process considerably, since no press wash-up, changeover times or off-press mixing is necessary. This reduces ink inventory and waste from seldom-used tins of specially mixed inks. The nett result is that X Gamut helps to reduce costs for printers and clients alike – with clients able to claim greater environmental credentials and accurate, consistent special colours.

    David Crowther comments: “At PacPrint and after, we will be focusing on Oris X Gamut, which brings numerous benefits to commercial, packaging and labels printers. With Oris X Gamut, spot/special colours can be accurately reproduced by using a standard colour ink set (CMYK+X), in seven or eight channels. The results are spectacular and we will be demonstrating this on our PacPrint stand F44 and welcome both digital and conventional printers to see and try for themselves.”

    Why X Gamut?

    Special colours are especially eye-catching and differentiate consumer appeal from plainer colours. However, until now, working with them requires effort and expense because of extra inventory, higher prices, frequent colour changes and subsequent wash-up and press downtime. 

    Oris X Gamut is not only ideally suited to reproduce spot and brand colours precisely, but also presents a perfect match of software features and intelligent workflow tools, enabling printers to leverage the full gamut of the press and ink set, so that images are printed brilliantly in all detail – without the need for special inks. This has also made X Gamut an important tool in the photographic/art printing industry where wide format printers always have extra colours to manage and workflows tend to be RGB.

    Oris X Gamut’s key benefits are:

    • Accurate spot colour reproduction with an extended standard ink set (CMYK+X)
    • Photo printing with vivid, highly saturated colours
    • Separation of PDF files & RGB data with special colours into multi-channel data
    • Generation of multi-channel profiles and custom test charts
    • Interface to standard spot colour libraries (e.g. Pantone)
    • Create and edit custom colour libraries
    • Fast & easy creation, processing and exchange of CxF or spectral measurement data
    • Simple handling and perfect results thanks to wizard-based user interface
    • Fully automated processes thanks to intelligent workflow tools
    • Immediate process and quality control with Certified Intelligent automation

    “We welcome all visitors to our small but powerful stand F44 at PacPrint,” says Crowther, “where we will also be showing colour measurement instruments from Techkon, Myiro and X-Rite, viewing booths from Just Normlicht, calibratable monitors from Eizo and demonstrating how Printflow CIP3 closed-loop colour and G7 & Mellow Colour ISO certification can ensure the right colours, first and every time.”

  • Electronics For Imaging, Inc., today announced the availability of its EFI IQ suite of cloud and mobile applications with supported EFI VUTEk, Wide Format, and Nozomi inkjet printers. With this advanced cloud service, EFI printer users can monitor production and printer utilisation, including exact device-level consumable tracking data, to reduce downtime, reduce costs and maximise the value of their EFI printer investments. New EFI wide- and superwide-format UV LED printers will include a one-year subscription to EFI IQ. EFI inkjet printer users can also purchase IQ subscriptions for other supported printers.

    The newly available cloud service for superwide-format production is making its debut at the May 31-June 03 FESPA Global Print Expo in Berlin.

    User-friendly with better business intelligence

    According to an early user of the cloud service’s new inkjet offering – Dave Brewer, chief technology officer of Foothill Ranch, California-based Image Options – “EFI IQ is a user-friendly tool that gives me better business intelligence to make better decisions.”

    By monitoring their printer fleets in real time, EFI IQ users can reduce consumable spend, save on labor costs, improve margins, and more.

    “Print business leaders often want and benefit from having more-complete knowledge of their plant operations,” said John Henze, vice president of sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “With EFI IQ, they can have their finger on the pulse of the business. This advanced cloud offering gives print business leaders a detailed, accurate understanding of production operations, which is key to knowing how a company can best meet its customers’ needs at any given point in time.”

    Prepare for productivity with powerful cloud tools

    The decision to adopt EFI IQ comes down to several key questions owners and managers should ask themselves about business performance, including:

    Can you accurately measure ink usage? Ink is one of the most expensive consumables and knowing exactly how much ink is consumed in a given time period, on specific media types and on individual jobs, can help you plan and price jobs more effectively.

    Is your team able to get real-time production blocking alerts? Production downtime can quickly accumulate if an operator is away working on another task when a stoppage happens on a printer. With IQ, users can set alerts customised to notify individuals who need to be informed of production blocking events. IQ also provides a detailed report on usage, uptime, downtime, etc., delivering verified information managers can use to improve overall productivity.

    Are you able to compare performance metrics between printers and shifts? Many production managers don’t have access to the level of data that allows them to make these comparisons. Or, they have to constantly ask operators and other sources for details to find indicators for possible improvements. With EFI IQ, this information is at managers’ fingertips; they can compare performance in real time or customize reports that enable streamlined analysis of historical performance and trends.

    Are you able to check production status from anywhere, at any time? Accessing information when away from the production floor often involves contacting a manager or operator who then must stop what he or she is doing to report back. With EFI Go, a remote management intelligence application in the EFI IQ suite, users can check overall production performance, jobs in progress, and many other indicators from any mobile device.

    The IQ suite is the only management solution to have a direct connection to EFI printer data, and it gives business leaders powerful tools to handle their day-to-day production and administrative challenges. Plus, the suite’s EFI Go component helps to ensure that managers receive urgent updates wherever they are. At early user site Studio DAR in Bielsko-Bia?a, Poland, notifications from the mobile application allow managers and operators to keep the company’s EFI Pro 32r+ roll-to-roll printer running as much as possible.

    “The EFI Go application,” said Studio DAR Owner Bartosz Przybyla, “displays important warnings, monitors material quantity, or lack thereof, and informs us when the material on a roll is about to run out, which is very useful with long webs.”

    With the data insights and notifications EFI Go and the entire EFI IQ suite provide, “print business owners gain the Industry 4.0 advantage they need for more streamlined, efficient and profitable print business management,” said Todd Zimmerman, vice president and general manager of Display Graphics, EFI Inkjet. “The integrations we developed between EFI IQ and our VUTEk and Wide Format inkjet printers elevate what our customers can achieve in operational efficiency and business strategy.”



    With EFI IQ’s Insight component, display graphics businesses can easily review and analyze historical trends on their EFI superwide-format printers to improve future performance.

  • Agfa has announced the release of SolidTune, a breakthrough prepress software solution for offset packaging printing that excels by reducing ink consumption and allowing faster turnaround time for greater production efficiency, improved image quality.

    SolidTune has been developed with the specific challenges of packaging production in mind, building on the success of the crucial elements of InkTune and PressTune, which are part of the highly regarded Agfa ECO3 program for sustainable innovation. The new technique applies a unique algorithm to the solids and text, after screening prior plate imaging. This process reduces the amount of ink needed for printing by an average of 3%.

    SolidTune is available on license in Apogee and Amfortis prepress workflows and can be used with any screening technology, including Agfa SPIR@L.

    New technology innovation for packaging
    As the last stage of the rendering process, SolidTune applies a unique ink saving algorithm to the solid 1-bit pixels, before final output. Unlike other solutions, the software has been devised with unique edge protection, meaning the algorithm ensures the edges of the solids are preserved to keep the print clean and crisp. This helps to create a better printable 1-bit file for offset packaging printing, where spot colors are often printed as solids.

    “The packaging market is growing, and the opportunity is growing for converters, meaning they are constantly searching for new technologies that can help them deliver even better print quality with strong colours, but at cost-efficient levels,” says Andy Grant, Agfa’s Global Head of Software.

    “We are now ramping up our unique offering for the demanding packaging market by leveraging our deep expertise in offset printing to introduce innovative solutions, such as SolidTune, that will have a considerable impact on the bottom line for the converter and the long-term sustainability of the process.”

    SolidTune: less ink, faster production
    Delivering exceptional ink-saving benefits, this new approach naturally shortens the overall production times, as the thinner solid ink film enabled by SolidTune takes less time and energy to dry. And with faster drying, downstream processes such as finishing and die-cutting can take place sooner, allowing converters to respond to demands from brand owners for faster delivery and also to save on warehouse costs.

    Furthermore, the implementation of SolidTune into the workflow improves ink distribution and reduces problems with ink offsetting from one impression to the next. There will also be less force on the substrate from the ink system, which prevents plucking (or picking) of fibers from the top paper layer; a problem that is known to cause reduced image quality and potential rejection of jobs.

    “This clever tool, which is very user-friendly and simple to impose during the rendering process, provides quite significant improvements in print quality,” states Grant.

    SolidTune can be combined with any screening but works optimally in combination with SPIR@L – Agfa’s revolutionary patented screening technology which was extended from commercial into packaging printing in 2021 – to achieve even bigger ink savings.

  • Esko continues to simplify and optimise production with emphasis on colour consistency, data processing and powerful insights 


    As the packaging industry continues to grow and adapt to the very real threats of today, supply chain volatility, labor shortages and rising consumable and energy costs all underline that converters need to accelerate their search for increased efficiencies throughout the workflow. That’s why Esko has today (28 March) launched a series of innovations to help businesses accelerate their digital transformation and unlock considerable productivity gains. 


    Esko Release 22.03 includes a host of new features, such as: 

    • New - Next generation Colour Preflight with Automation Engine and ArtPro+ 

    • New - Assembly instructions with ArtiosCAD, reducing assembly time by up to 20% 

    • New - Native Apple Silicon support for ArtPro+, DeskPack and Studio 

    • New - ArtPro+ Digital Edition for digital print workflows 

    • New - Improved WebCenter user experience and reporting 


    “This latest software release sees a number of breakthroughs in innovation that will streamline complex workflows,” said Jan De Roeck, Esko Director of Marketing, Industry Relations and Strategy. “We are simplifying processes from structural design through to reporting analytics, ensuring process control, and advanced colour software to deliver guaranteed quality and output to levels that were previously unattainable. 


    “Our continued software innovations respond to the market need for more effective processes that connect workflows between presses, departments, and even between remote facilities,” said Jan. “Many companies are now digitising many of their processes, tasks and workflows. We continue to support that ongoing digitisation by making our solutions even more powerful, robust, yet simple to engage and user-friendly. 


    “Addressing a growing need for actionable insights, this release also includes new features to enable businesses to make optimal use of data,” said Jan. “For those organisations who are already advanced with their digital transformation, collecting more data than ever before, we are empowering them to make more with what they have.” 


    New reporting tools in Automation Engine and business analytics in WebCenter help to turn that data into useful business insights that can help shape a business by identifying and untapping new efficiencies and eradicating further waste. “New additions to WebCenter, our packaging management solution, remove barriers and improve the user experience by increasing ease of use, while advanced reporting features and dynamic 3D viewing serve to better equip teams to meet today’s challenges,” said Jan. 


    “Our close relationship with customers and partners informs how we identify and respond to specific market trends,” he added. “With colour accuracy and consistency being key concerns for brands – and therefore to our customers - the ability to deliver accurate colour, regardless of run length or substrate, is of paramount importance to today’s packaging converters. That’s why we have introduced our next generation Colour Preflight in ArtPro+ and Automation Engine. 


    “Delivering a true forecast of colour conversion results, and with defined tollgates ensuring colour quality, it not only delivers accuracy on press but simplifies the editing process, simplifying colour matching work and speeding up the entire process,” said Jan. “What’s more, with Esko Release 22.03 we are making some of these innovations more accessible than ever. We want to remove barriers to digital transformation and ensure that everyone is equipped with the data, analytics and production intelligence to meet the challenges they already face today and are prepared for the emerging challenges of tomorrow. 


    “That’s why, for example, our new release also features a Digital Edition of ArtPro+. This underlines our commitment to digital print production, enabling digital printers to benefit from our native PDF editing software and take their own steps towards getting more jobs to press through automation. Similarly, this latest release has Native Apple Silicon support for ArtPro+, DeskPack and Studio. 


    “Esko Release 22.03 delivers value right across the workflow from ideation to production, be that through protecting the integrity of a design idea from screen to pack or driving efficiencies across the process and reducing the amount of waste generated,” said Jan. “These latest updates are focused on enabling customers to enhance and improve their workflow processes, by leveraging the benefits of the cloud and accessing the latest in automation technology. 


    “In the face of the disruptive market trends in the industry, we continue to work closely with our customers, listening and developing innovations that respond to demands and deliver tangible benefits,” said Jan. “This latest software release achieves this goal by enabling packaging converters to enjoy the accelerated business benefits that Esko solutions deliver.”

    March 22 2022

    Global printing industry leader Inkcups announces the launch of ArtPrep, an automated artwork preparation software for digital printing that will greatly reduce time and labor associated with traditional manual preparation methods.

    ArtPrep automatically prepares artwork for digital printing through a flexible user interface that is adaptable to any workflow. The software easily integrates with all Inkcups digital printers and workflows and accepts PNG files directly through any user’s art department or automatically through an API connection. ArtPrep adds desired layers, including customisable trapping, and can manipulate image placement and size as well as perform image adjustments.

    By reducing image preparation time, ArtPrep improves overall productivity of Inkcups’ established digital printer workflows. This innovative new software has a unique capability to seamlessly handle variable data, name drops, challenging gradients, and highlights, all while providing maximum control over ink usage and production costs.

    “We’re excited to launch our first artwork preparation software, ArtPrep. This new capability will further enhance the Inkcups customer experience by offering significant time savings over manual preparation of artwork for printing. Our main priority is to make sure our customers can easily create high-quality artwork quickly and efficiently, while saving them time and labor,” said Ben Adner, CEO of Inkcups.

    ArtPrep is a huge cost and efficiency gain for companies handling any volume of artwork files for printing on Inkcups digital machines. The software is compatible with all Inkcups cylinder and flatbed printers, which include: the Helix®, Helix Hi-Fi®, Double Helix®, Revolution®, X360, X2®, X5®, X5-T, XJET, and XJET800. ArtPrep is especially suited for print-on-demand companies handling one-off printing.

    Inkcups will be offering two versions of the software: ArtPrep and ArtPrep Pro. ArtPrep is now available worldwide and will be available in Europe starting Spring 2022.





  • Display graphics print providers now have a powerful solution for saving media and reducing prep time with newly available EFI™ Fiery® Prep-it™ true-shape nesting and cut-preparation software. The newly available solution from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. connects to any digital front end (DFE) – including full integration with EFI Fiery proServer and Fiery XF DFEs – to increase the profitability of cut jobs printed on wide- to superwide-format inkjet printers.
     
    Media and time savings
     
    This easy-to-use, powerful offering can reduce the time needed to manually nest jobs by up to 90%. It also reduces nesting time by more than 10% compared with other leading true-shape nesting offerings. Plus, Fiery Prep-it software saves users more than 10% in media usage compared with other, similar products thanks to its highly effective nesting algorithms. Display graphics businesses that currently use rectangular in-RIP nesting will find that Fiery Prep-it software reduces media consumption to a fraction of what they use today.
     
    On media savings alone, this affordable, effective software can pay for itself in as little as 2 months.
     
    Efficient, accurate, and fast true-shape nesting for cut jobs such as stickers, road signs, and more, are three critical capabilities for a display graphics workflow product,” said John Henze, vice president of sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “Fiery Prep-it software excels over other products because it delivers all three at an affordable price, saving our customers hours of prepress time while reducing material usage.”

    Automated cut job preparation
     
    Fiery Prep-it software can take jobs destined for cutting from different sources and prepare them quickly and correctly for print-then-cut production. This can be done manually or semiautomatically with the use of pre-sets and hot folders. Jobs that arrive to production from prepress workflow, web-to-print, or MIS solutions can take advantage of the capability to apply every available Prep-it cut setting in a full “hands-off” job production mode. Minimal-touch-point production reduces the potential for expensive human error and frees up operators for other important tasks such as graphic design or production planning.
     
    Decreasing preparation time, media consumption and touchpoints on cut jobs is the key to making customers’ operations more profitable.
     
    Economic advantages for all display graphics businesses

    Whether print businesses do their nesting layouts manually in Adobe® Illustrator®, or use an existing nesting solution, switching to Fiery Prep-it software offers compelling productivity gains and media savings. It has some of the best true-shape nesting technology on the market, including its 1° increment rotation capability and accurate double-sided nesting, giving users the ability to reduce media waste and turnaround time even further.
     
    On top of its ability to generate at least 10% in media savings, Fiery Prep-it also increases profitability by:

     

    • Giving companies the ability to win more tight-deadline business by preparing cut jobs in a fraction of the time required with manual nesting methods;
     
    • Reducing errors and expensive rework due to minimal touchpoints in job production with hot folders and automation capabilities;
     
    • Removing production bottlenecks with increased utilisation of existing printing and cutting equipment.
     
    The software integrates with EFI Fiery proServer and Fiery XF DFE print servers, providing access to an additional 1,300+ cutter and router types on top of built-in Prep-it connectivity options. The software can also connect to any RIP or DFE that accepts PDF files, serving as a central hub for cut job preparation.

  • FloorSignage, LLC, launches DriveOn Graphics, the world’s first wide format print media designed to be applied to surfaces that support both vehicle and pedestrian traffic. DriveOn Graphics is the first retro reflective digital print media created with drivers in mind. DriveOn Graphics can be applied directly to streets, parking lots and driveways providing motorists with clear visual communication. This first of its kind material offers ground graphics in full color that will stand up to the rigors of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

    “Placing graphics on outdoor walkways was a radical idea in our industry back in 2013 when we launched AlumiGraphics Grip,” said Scott Wieclaw, President of FloorSignage, LLC. “Thanks to our product, AlumiGraphics Grip, outdoor floor and ground graphics are now commonly used worldwide and known to be the most reliable solution for graphics on concrete, asphalt, and brick, withstanding weather conditions and pedestrian traffic,” says Wieclaw.

    “We began R&D efforts for DriveOn Graphics not long after launching AlumiGraphics Grip, in response to customers asking if our material could withstand vehicle traffic,” continued Wieclaw. “The missing piece of the puzzle was to develop a wide format print media product that would combine the ease and utility of a pedestrian use graphic with the strength and durability of a vehicular traffic marking,” said Wieclaw.

    Until recently, stenciled, painted graphics and thermoplastic products have been the only options for graphics placed on parking lot and driveway surfaces. “DriveOn Graphics provides a better alternative to these current methods that suffer from design limitations, are difficult and expensive to apply and are not easily removed,” stated Wieclaw.

    “Not simply just an outdoor ground graphic, DriveOn Graphics offers vehicle durability,” explains Wieclaw. “When ground graphic materials are used on surfaces supporting vehicle traffic such as parking garages, cross walks, drive thru lanes and transit stations, most graphics cannot withstand the forces they are subjected to by vehicle traffic. Some manufacturers claim their graphic materials can withstand limited vehicle traffic, but the truth is, these materials are thin and soft leaving them susceptible to damage,” according to Wieclaw. “DriveOn Graphics provides dimensional stability, designed to withstand the kinetic friction that takes place between a tire and the graphic material,” said Wieclaw.

    “DriveOn Graphics solves the common issue faced by graphic materials used in areas serving both pedestrian and vehicle traffic, providing a retro reflective, slip resistant pedestrian safe product reducing accident risk. DriveOn Graphic’s retro-reflectivity results in a highly visible material both day and night, providing crucial response time for vehicle drivers,” said Wieclaw.

    DriveOn Graphics can be cut to shape and used as turn arrows, symbols, and other traffic control and curbside messaging. The material is matte white and direct print compatible with latex & UV flatbed and hybrid printers. USA Made, DriveOn Graphics offers easy, heat free installation, and is sold in 44” x 35’ rolls to suppliers.

    “This new material blows the door wide open for endless uses from parking lot traffic markings to creative cross promotion for brands that can now easily access endless amounts of available surface area. Think branded parking spaces or sponsored curbside

    pickup areas and electric vehicle charging stations. There are no limits to the uses of DriveOn Graphics,” says Wieclaw.

    DriveOn Graphics is a product of FloorSignage, LLC. Headquartered in Sunbury, Ohio, FloorSignage, LLC has built a niche as the industry expert offering premium quality substrates that serve as the most reliable solutions for graphics applied direct to rigid wall and floor surfaces in a wide range of environments both indoors and outdoors.

    March 08 2022

    Colour Graphic Services, the Australian colour management, ISO and G7 specialist, also dealer for the highly-rated Myiro spectrophotometers in Australia and New Zealand, has announced a trade-in offer on any older spectrophotometer or colorimiter, to a Myiro-1 complete with Myiro Tools software, scanning/spot colour ruler USB cable, calibration cap, mini tripod for monitor calibration, downloadable spectrophotometer configuration software and storage case.


    David Crowther, Managing Director of Colour Graphic Services says: “As someone who is passionate about correct colour in the print and packaging sectors, I like to see people using the right tools to measure, profile and calibrate. I have not found a better instrument for this than the Myiro-1 together with Myiro Tools software. Many printers are using outdated, inadequate or out-of calibration spectrophotometers and colorimiters and wondering why colour is still not right.”

    Crowther continues: “To change this paradigm, for the month of March, we are offering 15% off the price of the Myiro-1 with MyiroTools software as a trade-in allowance for any older measuring device. This equates to between $550 and $700 saving, to upgrade to the best hand-held spectrophotometer/software combination available in the world today!”

    The Myiro-1 bundle can come with either Basic or Advanced MyiroTools software, which is then owned outright. Colour Graphic Services (CGS) requires the serial number of the traded-in device, which is then sent to CGS, for responsible disposal. The discount is applied at time of purchase.


    Trade-In pricing is: Myiro-1 with Basic Tools: $3,209 ex-gst (normally $3,775)

    Myiro-1 with Advanced Tools $3,927 ex-gst (normally $4,620)


    Crowther adds: “We can be a bit flexible with the March 31st cut-off due to the current shipping and flood situation. I am confident that anyone upgrading to the Myiro-1 bundle will experience colour accuracy they have never seen before.”
