Siegwerk relies on the precision of GMG ColorCard to produce digital ink drawdowns

“With the digitally-created color references, our customers get maximum precision in seconds.”
Melanie Frey, Regional Application Technology Manager at Siegwerk

The challenge

Switching from analog to digitally-created ink drawdowns with GMG ColorCard

The team of colorists at Siegwerk create recipes for brand and spot colors that correspond exactly to the respective specifications. Color cards are the binding reference for inks developed by the ink specialists; they accompany the job on press and are the agreed target to match between clients and printers. 

The fact that innovative processes are part of the long-standing success story is also reflected in the decision to switch from analog to digitally-created ink drawdowns with GMG ColorCard.
