Media Certification Program for HP Latex inks

Get your media certified to open new growth and potential for your business.

Make your life easier

Finding the optimal settings is a tedious process that can lead to a lot of trial and error, which many of you experience. This often results in high and unnecessary costs. Color Concepts has therefore teamed up with HP and developed a certification program for the HP Latex printers. This program will ensure that your material is printed with the perfect settings to provide the best quality and gets the attention it deserves. Moreover, the program creates unbiased evidence your material performs according to the highest standards.

ROLL TO ROLL

Media such as textiles, wall covering, and banners.

RIGID

Media such as foam boards, solid plastics, and PVC foam.

Create opportunities for your business

Create a benchmark

By creating the correct settings, testing your products to the highest standards and distributing that information through easy-accessible resources, we also create a reference for the ‘new normal’ in your product’s performance.  A reference that can be used by your support-, sales- and marketing teams. Knowing what is normal, changes the way your teams will support, sell and market your materials.

Help yourself and your customer by eliminating trial and error processes

Finding the correct settings for printer materials is not only time consuming, difficult and expensive, it also decreases your customers productivity and the overall solution you are able to provide your customers. Improving your bottom line and brand image. 

 

Prevent failures from happening 

Delivering truck loads of materials to customers, only to discover that the results they get with your materials is not what they expected, is a suppliers biggest nightmare. Both HP and Color Concepts provide the web-based tools to help your customers to pick the best material for the job. Eliminating the risk of failure and ensuring your distribution channel they can safely sell and support your products.

Reduce support costs and increase effectiveness

Eliminating the trial and error process, giving your customers a head start and providing your teams a reference, will drastically improve the confidence and peace of mind within your organization and distribution channel.

Create exposure

HP provides a powerful marketing channel to expose your products to her customers. Each HP Latex printer is connected to an advanced cloud software solution that will list your certified products onto the front panel of the printer. Another powerful resource is the HP Media Solutions Locator, which is visited by tens of thousands of HP customers around the world.

Get unbiased feedback and advice

Color Concepts has a powerful infrastructure and vast knowledge about inkjet printing, HP Latex technology and color management and workflow challenges print companies face. We are able to provide you with professional support-, testing- and training services to maximize your investment into HP Latex Certifications.

A little glimpse into the program

Providing the correct printing parameters to your customers can be a tough challenge. Guaranteeing the outcome and application feasibility of a material after printing, is an even tougher problem to solve.

HP and Color Concepts have developed a convenient way of testing your materials after printing with HP Latex inks, while collecting all necessary printing parameters for your customers to use.

Programs for flexible and rigid materials

We have designed two programs, for both rigid and flexible materials. Each program is focussing on the quality requirements each specific application has. Each application is tested in a slightly different way, to make sure we simulate the real use of your materials as close as possible.
