A high proportion of Printers/Litho tell us that they are wasting money investing in a high quality monitors. This maybe true for the printer who never looks at his clients’ work on screen and never receives client proofs. For the rest of us a colour accurate monitor is a must if we want to save money and improve production.
The monitor is the cheapest place to get it right. A colour accurate LCD monitor is essential. A customer recently received a proof from his client with the instructions to ‘match my proof’. He opened the job in Adobe CS4 InDesign and soon saw there was a significant colour difference between the proof and the file.
A phone call to the client resolved the problem. Without the colour accurate monitor the press minder could have been wasting ages trying to match an impossible target. HardSoft offer a range of Colour Accurate screens from such places as NEC, Lacie , IIyama and Eizo. Suitable for both Apple Mac Pro and PC Workstations. We can add these to any of these products and are available on our flexible lease scheme.
