Color Conference Arizona

Color Conference Arizona

Co-chair of the Ghent Workgroup packaging subcommittee, Steve Carter, will speak about packaging standards at the Color Conference in Arizona.

Wouldn’t it be great to know the package design files you built and shipped off to the printer were production worthy? Industry veteran Steve Carter knows what it takes to create print-ready PDF files for packaging. During his session, taking place at the Color Conference on Monday, December 8 at 1:40 pm, he’ll share his top tips for creating high quality PDF files especially for packaging projects.

Steve Carter, Senior Vice President of Technology at Phototype and Co-chair of the GWG packaging subcommittee, co-authored the Packaging Specifications for the Ghent Workgroup, a body of international experts who develop best practices for publishing and packaging workflows.

The GWG Packaging Subcommittee represents more than 30 Prepress/Printing companies, associations, vendors, consultants and educational institutions all over Europe and the USA, that work together and evaluate the best practice implementation of end-to-end PDF workflows in the packaging industry around the world. Their main goal is to reduce both time-to-market and cost by finding the way to get the job done correctly the first time by providing specifications that will allow the blind exchange of files wherever practical. Many brand owners do not have the staff or expertise to manage this process worldwide and are looking for solutions that help them predict how files will look and print wherever they are used in the supply chain.

If you are a professional for whom managing color and creating production worthy PDF files matters (in design, branding, photography, print production and multimedia publishing), you can’t afford to miss this session by Steve Carter, giving you all the information on which tools help you create rock-solid PDFs for packaging.
