Colour management company GMG once again has a reason to celebrate: the firm has won the Label Industry Global Award 2020 - Award for Innovation (for companies with up to 300 employees) - for the second year running.
The awards jury consisted of industry experts from the label and packaging industry, and the criteria of the competition was as varied as they are demanding. Starting with the general degree of innovation, what counts most are the practical effects and economic aspects. However, topics such as energy efficiency and sustainability are also taken into account in the jury's decision.
The winning team was managed by Rainer Schmitt, head of strategy and product management at GMG, who was particularly pleased that a solution from GMG was chosen for the second time in succession. "We are incredibly proud that we were able to convince them with a solution that makes packaging printing much more efficient - the future of colour reference is digital," said Schmitt.
GMG Colorcard gives users the opportunity to digitally create physical colour cards in the shortest possible time. The innovative solution provides secure colour references with spectral data-based precision.
"With GMG Colorcard, time-consuming coordination cycles about the feasibility of a brand colour can be drastically reduced. Tolerances can be agreed with the customer prior to production, thus increasing efficiency not only in the colour kitchen, but also on the press," the company stated in a press note shared with PrintWeek.
The smart solution is believed to replace numerous manual steps and reproduce spot colours on different paper qualities accurately and repeatedly.
Last year, in the same category, the software company's Calibration Wizard was honoured for its ability to enable colour-accurate and reproducible proofing on different substrates.
Now in its 17th edition, the awards recognise the most innovative, influential and successful work from the label and package printing industry across the globe in the last 12 months.
