ORIS Press Matcher//Web and ORIS Certified//Web prove their worth at online on-demand document printer
Color consistency is a vital component of business document printing, especially where a company's brand and reputation for quality are visible to the public. Mimeo.com has already established a reputation for highly efficient online document ordering and fulfillment. Digital printing is done at multiple locations, using several different print "engines," including HP Indigo, Xeikon, Kodak Nexpress and HP wide format devices. While each of these devices is capable of high quality color, Mimeo.com sought a means of taking color management to the enterprise level - producing the same high quality color from any device.
Testing and Implementation
Mimeo.com first examined the ORIS product line at GraphExpo 2010, and subsequently began analyzing color printing conditions across their entire fleet of digital presses. Using ORIS Certified // Web to measure and capture color data, the company determined there would be a significant return on investment from more consistent color on their many output devices.
The company then integrated ORIS Press Matcher // Web and ORIS Certified //
Web for digital presses at their headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee. The use of Press Matcher allowed each device to achieve consistent, high-quality color, regardless of the number of impressions, on different press runs or even on devices from different manufacturers.
Mimeo.com is now in the process of implementing ORIS color control and monitoring in its other locations, ensuring enterprise-wide color consistency for all of its business customers.
ORIS Certified // Web and ORIS Press Matcher // Web are available now.
