Rigid Media Certification Program for HP Latex inks

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

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 R Printer Series for rigid media. 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.

The steps you need to take

The first step is filling in the contact form. You can find the contact form here. After you filled in our contact form, our Global Sales Manager will reach out to you and will discuss the process. The third step is to apply for the certification. Then, you can send your material to one of our testing labs in the USA or Europe. Our lab technicians will perform a wide variety of tests on your material to make sure to provide the best quality. Note that in order for your media to be certified, every available thickness of that material needs to be tested. Once your media has been tested, Color Concepts will send you the results in a report. When your material is officially certified, HP will publish your materials onto the HP websites and the printer front panels. Color Concepts will subsequently send you the official HP Latex Certified logo, which you can use in your marketing and communications to increase your sales.
