X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced that DISC, a leading New York-based packaging converter, has achieved PANTONE® Certified Printer status for offset printing and offset extended gamut printing. The PANTONE Certified Printer Program reviews and analyzes every aspect of a printer’s color operations – preflight, to file preparation and proofing, to ink formulation and mixing, and to process control in the pressroom. DISC’s certification confirms the company’s ability to consistently achieve the most stringent customer color requirements, efficiently and cost effectively, using offset and extended gamut printing with a fixed palette of seven colors.
“X-Rite worked with DISC to produce our Pantone Extended Gamut Guide, and we’re very excited to announce that DISC is the first packaging converter to achieve extended gamut seven-color printing process,” said Adrián Fernández, Vice President and General Manager, Pantone. “Extended gamut printing opens up new color palette possibilities for brand owners and converters without the added expense of spot color printing. Our certification process helps printers, like DISC, close the gap between CMYK and spot color printing by establishing standard processes for measuring and monitoring color in an extended gamut printing process.”
