The OptiColor Imaging System
The OptiColor Imaging System is widely used to produce specialty signage and high impact, point of purchase display graphics. Options such as dry, rub-off transfers in a variety of effects including foils, fluorescents, and metallics are important supplements that can add onto or go beyond a wide variety of color presentations such as digital output or analog capabilities.
Most often used to create mock-ups, models and prototypes of packaging and label designs, OptiColor products provide the ability to visualize exact color and graphics that are vital to printers and designers today. The OptiColor Imaging System can be an important part in the proofing and design process.
Today, the OptiColor Imaging system is recognized as the innovative leader for achieving solutions to complex design problems that are continuing to evolve. Spectratech water based inks are the answer for high definition proofing. Spectratech Inks are in wide use today and are used to effectively match custom and spot color images in a wide variety of short run applications.
The OptiColor Imaging System is a combination of creative tools, all with the objective being to reach a variety of graphic design needs. The advantage of the OptiColor Imaging System is in the reality of providing a cost-effective means of short run accurate color capability.
The key to OptiColor is the ability to be tailored to specific needs. Controllable and consistent, the various methods offer a broad spectrum of applications that are the essential link between the designer and the printer.
The OptiColor Training Program includes a wide variety of applications and techniques for producing transfers and proofs. We will cater a training session around your specific needs that can include any and all methods. You may even want to bring your own films. All-important aspects such as project engineering, film preparation and color matching are valuable elements that can be shown and discussed.
Some of the topics may include:
- All aspects of Spectratech imaging
- Advantages of combining Spectratech vs. solvent based imaging
- How best to achieve accurate dot resolution on a variety of substrates
- All aspects of water/solvent dry transfer processes including digital transfers
Foil imaging using pre-metallized sheets and custom foil processes
- Understanding direct imaging to specialized stocks
- All aspects of color blending and matching
Central Chemical & Service does not charge for training.No matter what your level of experience or expertise may be, we encourage everyone to schedule a training session with us at our facility.
