TORONTO, ON., September 18, 2012 – When Toronto-based commercial printer Harmony Printing became the first customer in Canada to receive the Xerox Confident Colour Certification seal it noticed three things: customers appreciated the commitment to quality; output capacity rose by as much as 50 percent, without increasing labour time or adding new equipment; and, print  job waste dropped significantly.
 
“As a printer, our customers expect exceptional, consistent colour reproduction, regardless of the press or output device,” said Ruby Thomas, vice-president of operations, Harmony Printing. “We believe the  Xerox Confident Colour Certified program not only makes a statement that we are committed to delivering on customer expectations but it’s also had a very positive effect on our digital colour business.”
 
With the growth of digital colour printing, customers today want a print provider that can meet fast turnaround times and deliver the highest quality colour output. The Xerox Confident Colour Certification allows print providers to deliver every job with confidence.
 
Now available in Canada, the certification program is designed to help printers implement critical work processes for digital colour printing, education, environmental control for printing and media storage and conformance to industry standards for viewing and printing.
 
“This meticulous process is a great investment for any commercial printing business looking to grow their digital colour portfolio, deliver the best printed product and reduce costs,” said Gautam Malik, vice-president, Customer Service and Supply Chain Operations, Xerox Canada. “Customers receive ongoing support through the Colour Management Maintenance Plan and have access to a Confident Colour Certified Kit, which includes planning tools, business applications and certification materials for use in our customers’ promotional materials.”
 
The Xerox Confident Colour Certification  ensures compliance with industry standards and enables print providers who achieve
and maintain certification to substantiate their commitment to colour accuracy,
consistency and repeatability and high standards in digital colour printing.
