Potentially The Future of Colour Matching?


Here at Positive ID Labels we always try to accommodate to all our clients wants and needs. Some are easier than others!

One of the problems that we are commonly approached about is that some companies struggle to colour match digitally printed labels to their other packaging.

The more you get into colour matching different types of print and packaging the more complex it gets!

Recently there has been work done by a company called Xeikon on a new colour matching system to enable them to better match existing colours, many of which are from different processes and not strict pantone colours, to a digitally printed label.

They have recently commissioned their Xeikon Colour Control (XCC). This allows them to measure the colour profile of any object using clever software which matches it to the best possible colour on the digital labelling press.

They will be making a more comprehensive announcement shortly, but this photo shows is one of the early results where they have easily matched a litho printed carton and an injection moulded plastic lid to digitally printed label stock.

Impressed?  We are!

Hopefully this will allow us to be able to colour match easier in the near future, and so hopefully produce bespoke labels for our clients more efficiently.

If you want any more information on colour matching systems then don’t hesitate to call us on 01332 864895 or fill in the form and we will get back to you:
