press-side assistance

Press-side assistance and approvals management by CSW technical staff enables direct collaboration with the press operator, ink manufacturer and production manager to ensure print quality and color accuracy.

Xcolor™ Expanded Color Gamut Certification

Because establishing a successful extended gamut print operation can be challenging, CSW has created a program to ease the burden for printers just entering the ECG market. The Xcolor™ ECG process provides printers with not only proven separations, but also onsite training for ECG best practices, pressroom support during approvals, and post-run evaluations. Dozens of printers have executed thousands of Xcolor™ ECG runs since 2011.


CSW evaluates existing proofs, plates or printed samples to recommend efficiencies in both design and execution. ImageLab™ color technicians provide analysis of production files and printed materials, using calibrated instrumentation for in-depth forensic reporting.
