Jagar Sprinting steps ahead with PSO certification
Sydney-based Jagar Sprinting achieves PSO certification on Xerox iGen4 press.
Director of Jagar Sprinting, Bruce Jacobs, (pictured) said that the PSO certification to ISO 12647-2 standard process on the company’s digital technology, including for the first time in the world a Xerox iGen4 digital press, had been challenging and time consuming, but the company had achieved it through “determination and a superlative effort from our employees”.
“The benefits of this achievement will flow to our customers through better colour management, better products, better turnaround times – in other words, a consistently superior process in every facet of our operation,” Jacobs said. “This will strengthen our relationship with our customers, and we are confident that business growth will come through the transition to digital print from other print methodologies, at a time when print runs are reducing and we have been awarded an offset print standard in the digital arena.”
Jagar Sprinting undertook the PSO certification process in November 2009, taking eight months to achieve certification with the assistance of UGRA PSO certification consultant, Jason Hall of CMYKit.
Hall believes that the certification will further strengthen Jagar Sprinting’s reputation. “The achievement of PSO, the highest recognition of printing to international colour standards, is testament to the Jagar Sprinting commitment to world-class printing expertise,” he said.
Jagar Sprinting has also received PSO certification to ISO 12647-2 standard for its Xerox iGen4 digital press, ISO 12647-7 for its digital proofing system, ISO 3664 for its viewing station and ISO 15930-6 for PDF/X3.
