Give bad colour the boot: three day intensive workshop

Trade association SGIAA is hosting a three-day colour management workshop at Starleaton in Melbourne, which features US print specialist and director of digital print programmes at the US SGIA Ray Weiss.

The SGIAA (speciality graphic imaging association of Australia) says printers will come away from this intensive workshop “with skills that will give bad colour the boot — improving production quality while reducing errors, waste, and customer complaints.”

It says attendees will learn everything from colour theory (and its practical implications) to the latest techniques in media profiling, device management and how to apply the newest print standards to production workflow.

and better quality control, and learning techniques for rapid device calibration, media profiling and print verification.

In addition to Weiss local colour guru David Crowther aka the Colour Doctor will be on hand to sahe his expertise with participants.
