X-Rite Makes It Easier for Printers to Measure Color on Credit Cards

New X-Rite Payment Card Holder works with the eXact Family and Ci60 Series of spectrophotometers to capture accurate and consistent color readings on credit, gift, ID, loyalty and key cards.

“Brands use eye-catching colors, logos, metallic foils, and artwork to make their gift, loyalty, promotional, and credit cards stand out,” said Michael Beering, Product Manager, X-Rite and Pantone. “Any mistake in production can be costly and force the entire job to be scrapped. Working directly with our customers, we created the Payment Card Holder to help press operators properly align a card and take multiple spot measurements. This makes for a repeatable process across shifts and facilities. It also helps operators identify quality control issues early in the process.”
X-Rite’s Payment Card Holder allows press operators to secure a card and align a handheld spectrophotometer at precise points of measurement to evaluate color accuracy. The ruler features a millimeter scale that enables operators to capture measurements at specified locations for a repeatable process across shifts and manufacturing facilities.  As a result, printers and manufacturers can adhere to standard operating procedures for consistent measurements, even across operators, shifts, and production sites.

X-Rite Solutions Help Printers and Packaging Converters Accurately Produce Pantone Color of the Year 2021: Ultimate Gray + Illuminating

The official spectral color values for PANTONE® 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating are now available in PantoneLIVE™, a cloud-based digital color standard ecosystem. PantoneLIVE integrates across X-Rite’s digital workflow tools allowing brands and their suppliers to immediately start color matching, formulating and accurately producing Ultimate Gray and Illuminating for a variety of print, packaging, wide format, signage, industrial and multimedia design applications. 

“A marriage of strength and optimism, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating do not have to be used in equal proportions, either color can take precedence whether for print, packaging, beauty, or home furnishings,” said Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
“Producing Illuminating for its highest visibility and impact or Ultimate Gray for its versatility in packaging and store displays will require the right color management software that can match the color across corrugated, film, offset and digital to ensure that all the components match,” said Ray Cheydleur, Printing and Packaging Market Manager, X-Rite. “Together Pantone and X-Rite provide designers, brands, and their print suppliers with integrated solutions to streamline the design to production process.  This includes tools for digital color communication, ink formulation, color measurement and quality control.”

X-Rite Announces IntelliTrax2 Pro and eXact Auto-Scan Pro with Full ColorCert Integration and G7® Press Control Capabilities

IntelliTrax2 Pro and eXact Auto-Scan Pro enable packaging converters to seamlessly integrate with ColorCert for instant feedback on job performance, improved quality control reporting, and Idealliance G7® Press Control Certification.
IntelliTrax2 Pro and eXact Auto-Scan Pro deliver instant feedback to the press operator about job performance after each color measurement, allowing print operators to make immediate adjustments to correct color drift. These new Pro versions also enable printers to implement and manage Idealliance G7® process control guidelines and ISO print specifications for confidence that each job is delivered according to industry standards and customer requirements. 
“As more consumer package goods (CPG) brands implement packaging quality control programs and monitor color tolerances, converters and package printers need color measurement solutions that integrate directly with scorecard systems,” said Ray Cheydleur, Printing and Imaging Product Portfolio Manager, X-Rite. “The new IntelliTrax2 Pro and eXact Auto-Scan Pro are part of a powerful G7®-aligned workflow that provides press operators with performance visibility, real-time guidance on how to achieve the desired colors quickly, and seamless reporting back to the ColorCert Scorecard Server.” 
IntelliTrax2 Pro is a non-contact, automated color measurement solution ideal for high-end, high-speed print and converting operations. The eXact Auto-Scan Pro combines the portability of a handheld spectrophotometer with the speed of an automated scanning system to help converters automate the measurement of all patches of a color bar. 
Full integration between ColorCert Suite and IntelliTrax2 Pro or eXact Auto-Scan Pro allows press operators to easily implement an end-to-end connected workflow solution for daily press side scanning and scorecard reporting into brand packaging quality control programs. Now featuring Idealliance G7® Press Control System Certification, IntelliTrax2 Pro and eXact Auto-Scan Pro enable operators to fully leverage the advantages of G7® based production.
