X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in colour science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, has announced Toyo Ink has joined the PantoneLIVE accredited partner programme. The accreditations would enable Japan based brand owners and packaging converters to more easily use the PantoneLIVE ecosystem for digital colour communications to accurately define, develop and share precise spectral definitions for brand colour palettes based on specific substrates, print processes, inks and application methods.

The accredited programme PantoneLIVE is a cloud-based colour management solution. It enables the universal Pantone colour language to be accurately communicated across the entire packaging workflow – from design concept to retail store shelves.

“We are extremely proud to become an accredited ink manufacturer partner for PantoneLIVE. PantoneLIVE revolutionizes the way colour is communicated and ensures accurate colour in printing across multiple geographic locations and printing partners. Using PantoneLIVE our customers worldwide will be able to speed print production times and improve overall workflow efficiencies,” said Takashi Yamauchi, general manager, corporate planning division, Toyo Ink.

To support customer demand for a wide color gamut, Toyo Ink would offer total colour management solution and a range of printing inks for commercial printing and packaging. Toyo Ink will use PantoneLIVE internally to help match Pantone colours, including options for a variety of substrates and printing processes.

“We have enjoyed a longstanding business relationship with Toyo Ink and are excited to now have Toyo Ink as an accredited partner for PantoneLIVE. In addition, Toyo Ink will offer Japanese brand owners PantoneLIVE solutions to help communicate colour across the entire packaging supply chain. This broadens PantoneLIVE’s presence in the growing Asian marketplace and provides our customers the assurance needed that the inks they are using meet brand owner standards regardless of the substrate or printing technology used,” said Fumiteru Minami, general manager for Japan and Korea, X-Rite Pantone.
