Approval time cut by half- Athena Graphics relies on GMG ColorPlugin in flexo prepress

Release date: Thursday 31st August 2017

Tuebingen (August 31, 2017) – Athena Graphics is Belgium’s leading flexo prepress provider with subsidiaries in France and the Netherlands. Specialists edit images and layouts in Adobe Photoshop to be able to produce optimal print-ready flexo plates. The individual adaption of colors to the production environment plays a key role: Printing presses, plates, colors and anilox rolls can vary in different printing plants.

Reliability and control in image editing

With GMG ColorPlugin, the color management company GMG offers a powerful and easy-to-use solution to optimize print data in Adobe Photoshop. As beta tester, Athena Graphics quickly noticed how the color-accurate softproofing especially of spot colors brought significant gains in reliability and control to the image editing process.. Apart from the softproofing, GMG ColorPlugin allows color edits on entire layouts, single layers down to selected areas. Athena Graphics’ proof manager Johan Heyrick is happy to save time while improving the quality: „Both time and the number of approval cycles has been significantly reduced. The investment has paid off in a very short time.”

Powerful features, easy to use

In addition to color-acccurate softproofing, the GMG ColorPlugin provides conversions between color spaces via GMG OpenColor and the possibility to remove individual color channels or to exchange them with others. It’s also possible to adapt the first printing dot – an automatic preview visually highlights critical areas.
