Colorgate, a vendor of powerful software and hardware solutions for colour critical digital printing applications, has released three new solutions and services. Colorgate offers digital expertise and solutions for printing system manufacturers, as well as print service providers and technology users in décor, ceramics, textile, and packaging printing.

Colorgate Productionserver is the company’s core product. This RIP and colour management solution is available in a commercial version for large-format printing and graphic arts, as well as in industrial versions for packaging, ceramics, décor, and textile printing. The industrial versions have exclusive features for their respective markets, such as Colorgate’s fingerprint technology for ceramics and décor printing or an industry-leading white under-base creation for textile printing on dark substrates, the company said in a media statement.

The new version 20 has been updated to Adobe’s PDF Print Engine 5, supports spectral spot colour definitions, and brings compatibility with PantoneLIVE. It features improved spot colour support for Pantone and Freie Farbe spot colour libraries and includes now additional settings for the Ink Saver feature to allow for even greater ink savings.

Industrial users will also benefit from the new Retouch Module, allowing last-minute colour corrections before going to print while staying consistent with a colour-managed workflow, and from the Color Correction Loop Module which is a prerequisite for iterative colour correction processes in décor production.

For the industrial versions of Productionserver, Colorgate will offer a subscription-based pricing from version 20 onwards. For an annual fee, users will receive the right to use the software, free updates and upgrades, and access to Colorgate’s technical support. This new subscription license combines all costs related to the use and maintenance of Colorgate’s software into one predictable annual fee and helps production managers to keep their software solution up-to-date and productive.

Also available from July 2020, Colorgate launches Custom Create, a new end-to-end workflow solution that connects print buyers, print service providers and brand owners. The core of Custom Create is a powerful, Magento-based e-commerce engine with advanced features such as product creators with advanced customisation features and 3D product previews, as well as a pricing engine that can be individually configured and supports all leading payment methods.

Other modules that Colorgate is going to make available over the next quarters include online marketing support, connectors to creative applications, job ticketing and fulfilment functions such as inventory and shipment management. The workflow solution integrates seamlessly with Colorgate’s Productionserver. Colorgate Custom Create targets the business community of digital decorators, print service providers, brand owners, designers, fulfillers as well as all kinds of print buyers with business or personal demands that are looking to monetise their brand equity by producing merchandise and other branded products. Colorgate’s Custom Create is available from Colorgate directly.

Colorgate is now launching a Professional Color Management Services offering where users of any printing and colour management technology can pick a standardised service from a menu. It has a Color Gap Analysis, including an in-depth evaluation of an existing colour management workflow for accuracy and compliance with established standards. Customers will receive a detailed evaluation report with suggestions for improvements.

There will be colour management bundles for designers, including training, a spectrophotometer, a swatch book and, optionally, a license for Colorgate Productionserver. It will also include colour management bundles for soft proofing, including training, a spectrophotometer, a light booth, profiling software and, optionally, a quarterly check-up.

Color management bundles for production proofing will include training, an inkjet printer, proofing media, proofing software, a light booth, and a spectrophotometer and, optionally, quarterly assistance. Color managements for professional print bundle, will include Colorgate’s DFE Profiler, training, a spectrophotometer and, optionally, a quarterly assistance service, an inkjet printer, proofing media, a light booth, and a quarterly assistance.
