ColourSolutions the new HELP button for colour users

Date: theprinterdatabase today opened ColourSolutions, a one-stop advice and help centre for all issues relating to printing in colour.

ColourSolutions has already attracted a number of clients, and pre-launch the following companies have already signed up:

· ICI Paints Division (Dulux)

· FujiHunt

· Riverline Graphics

· Minolta QMS Inc.

The ColourSolutions service provides onsite, telephone and email help to its clients on a wide range of problems: from advising which hardware and applications to buy for their particular requirements and how to set it up, to user training programmes, to profiling, calibration and support.

Colour matching is a key part of the calibration services, and ColourSolutions will help clients to match
colour from scanner to monitor to printer to press, ensuring a best possible match from start to finish. The team will also organise training sessions and workshops to get client users quickly up to speed and comfortable using the new equipment and to help them achieve the colour matches themselves. Once set up, clients can take out a technical support and maintenance contract with ColourSolutions to cover them for any future difficulties they might experience. All calibration work is offered on a “no fix, no fee” basis.

On the manufacturer side, ColourSolutions has extensive technical experience enabling them to provide technical writing skills and manual authoring services to manufacturers as well as real-life insights into market needs.

“Colour can be a confusing issue,” said Miles Powley, Co-Founder of theprinterdatabase. “Time and again we come across companies and individuals who really struggle with their colour equipment, finding it very hard to get a finished product that reflects the colours and finish they had in mind when they first began a project. At theprinterdatabase we have many years experience of working in the colour printing industry which means we have come across most of the problems before and found solutions to them.

“ColourSolutions’s raison d’etre is firstly to make our knowledge widely available to other companies such as graphic designers and architects so that we can help them to achieve the high-levels of colour finishes essential for their work, and secondly to provide a market research service to the hardware and software developers and colour ink developers so that they manufacture products that are useful and will sell well.”
