Efficient creation of packaging proofs and mock-ups

GMG software allows producing consistent and accurate color results on virtually any substrate – with white ink and varnish support. This is important for the digital production of packaging mock-ups made of the original materials. With GMG solutions for packaging proofing on transparent and opaque materials dramatic time savings and cost reduction by up to 90% can be achieved compared to analog proofing systems.

The GMG solutions enable all kinds of businesses engaged in flexible packaging, compound board packages or tin printing, to offer their customers corresponding services.

  • The combination of GMG proofing software and the new Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 white ink printer permits maximum color quality on transparent film or metal foil. The printer’s extended gamut makes it possible to simulate 98% of the Pantone GOE spot colors
  • The unique solution of GMG and Mimaki for high value packaging applications enables for the first time digital proofing on original substrates. It combines the UV inkjet printers UJF-605, 607 and 3042 of Mimaki, the color management software GMG ColorServer for fully automatic color conversions and GMG SmartProfiler for calibrating and profiling printers
  • The GMG ColorProof / GMG FlexoProof software and the Roland inkjet printers LEC 330, 540 and the VS Series open agencies, repro houses, printers and brand owners in the packaging and label market totally new dimensions for package prototyping and small lot production of labels

Standardization of printing processes and presses

GMG solutions are particularly suitable for printing facilities who wish to implement standardized printing processes to color-manage their entire graphic workflows, from prepress to print production (such as Fogra and G7 procedures). The result is completely standardized colors and printing processes; regardless of what printing method is applied (such as offset, flexo, or digital), delivering high print quality and stability while reducing costs.

  • GMG ColorServer creates the uniform color standards
  • GMG InkOptimizer provides fully automatic chromatic ink reduction, while offering better press control and faster make readies.
  • GMG PrintControl provides effective printing process control and standardization of the press.
  • GMG ColorProof delivers exceptionally accurate proofs

Color management solutions for digital and wide format printing

While precise, consistent color management has long since been commonplace in other fields of printing, it is only now that the significance of color for large-format prints – such as signs and displays – is also coming to be recognized.

GMG SmartProfiler and GMG ColorServer allow to very easily create the necessary color profiles and calibrations for a particular output device with the help of a Wizard, enabling digital and large-format press users to achieve the highest color accuracy on virtually any substrate, repeatability and color consistency. Together, GMG SmartProfiler and ColorServer provide a centralized system for any digital or wide format printing operation.

GMG Color Management Solutions for Packaging Applications

The product life cycle of consumer goods has become much shorter, while new products are developed and brought to market at a correspondingly high rate. Packaging design and print houses need to produce top-quality, contract-level packaging proofs and mock-ups quickly, along with color-managed packaging that can hold corporate colors well.

GMG FlexoProof – The Proofing Standard for the Flexo and Packaging Markets

The product portfolio in flexo and packaging printing is characterized – in comparison with standardized offset and illustration gravure printing – by far greater substrate and spot color diversity. Consequently, the demands on a digital proofing system are also higher in the packaging sector. GMG sets new standards in this field - download this free white paper to find out more.

GMG DotProof: The Digital Halftone Proof

In platesetting, parameters like screen, overprinting and trapping settings, as well as correction curves, have a decisive influence on the subsequent printed result. Should problems occur at this point, such as an unfavorable screen angle, incorrect trapping or overprinting settings, and also interpretation errors, this can only be detected at an early stage by means of a halftone proof created with the original imagesetter data.
