Our key services for print media vendors

Profiling

When an end user runs into problems during printing, they always point to the media as the culprit. It can be a very costly proposition for an end user to try to guess the settings needed to create beautiful prints on your media. We can eliminate that guesswork through the creation of profiles. A profile is the set of parameters that define the settings on a printer for a specific print media/printer/RIP combination. By providing your customers with profiles for the media you distribute, you eliminate the trial-and-error process for your customer and can confidently let them know that your media works with their printer. The result is a tremendous value-add to your substrate offering. Let us help you broaden your market share by creating profiles for your substrates – harness the power of ColorBase to help you understand what your customers’ needs are and meet them effortlessly by working with us to build your profile library!

Media testing

Color Concepts offers a wide variety of standardized tests to evaluate how a media will perform on the different ink technologies. These tests are designed to provide media manufacturers with information needed to sell their products, to understand how their media performs compared to comparable products available on the market, and to make informed decisions about new products under consideration for private label marketing. Tests range from simple uniformity tests to in depth competitive analysis testing. All tests are conducted in our independent testing labs and provide unbiased results on media performance.

Sample printing

Imagine you trying to sell your material. Your customers want to see the media perform on different technologies, like Latex or Solvent, but you have only a blank roll and no sample to show. Color Concepts offers the simple solution – high quality sample prints of your profiled media.

ColorBase

Inkjet printing requires an accurate set of parameters, which we call a profile. ColorBase helps distribute these profiles: it gives insight into your customers’ behavior and it gives peace of mind to sales and support organizations. It connects manufacturers, distributors and print shops.
