Fingerprinting for colour consistency across materials

The primary objective of colour management is to obtain the same colour result on various substrates or materials. Colours react differently on diverse surfaces. That is why colour management is important for obtaining the best possible result. At DSN Artwork Prepress we maintain a database of over 900 printer specifications from various printing houses worldwide. This enables us to predict how a press will print without having to use a single sheet of paper. This is called ‘fingerprinting’. DSN can steer or manage the intensity of the colours according to substrate and printer specifications in order to guarantee the best possible result and maintain brand consistency across various materials.
