pressSIGN PrintBuyer

pressSIGN-PrintBuyer V 7


pressSIGN-PrintBuyer monitors and evaluates the colour printing process for litho, digital, flexo and gravure. pressSIGN-PrintBuyer provides an objective assessment of the printed sheet simply by reading the pressSIGN colour bar.

Create print standards based on internationally recognised targets or your own customized settings. Lock the standard and export the target to your print supplier. Measure a printed sheet to check the print quality against the standard you have set.

pressSIGN-PrintBuyer allows both buyer and supplier to agree objectively on quality standards.

pressSIGN-PrintBuyer V 7 main features:

  • Scores the measurement against the print target giving a colour coded overall score making it easy to assess the print job or measurement.
  • Print targets - all international standards supported. Print targets fully customisable
  • Spot Colours - includes PANTONE™ libraries for measuring and controlling four colour processes plus two spots, create custom spot libraries

Why Print Buyers choose pressSIGN printers

Many of the world's largest print buyers insist their suppliers use pressSIGN for a number of important reasons. We recommend that print buyers ask their supplier to take a measurement of the pressSIGN colour bar every ten minutes during the print run, mark them up and keep these measured sheets in the job bag for up to 3 months. The sheets can then be sent to the print buyer and double checked for conformity using pressSIGN-PrintBuyer. For most jobs this won't be necessary as the buyer can rely on the pressSIGN production report to certify how the job was printed.

When using a pressSIGN printer you can receive a detailed production report immediately at the end of the job via pressSIGN OnLine.

You can set spot colours from the built-in PANTONE™ libraries or create your own spot colour libraries and export the library to your print suppliers.
