The Digital Color Professional program promotes skill in color management with a two-part certification process. After applicants pass a written test, they must print a test image provided by SGIA. The Sonoco Institute will evaluate those test prints for color quality and consistency using industry agreed-upon specifications.
“Proper color management is crucial for delivering prints that meet or exceed customer demands,” said Ray Weiss, director of Digital Print Programs, SGIA. “Certification through the Digital Color Professional program demonstrates that a printer knows how to get color right consistently.”
Until this partnership, SGIA staff measured the test prints that were submitted for certification.
“Clemson is excited to become more involved in the ever-evolving digital printing arena. We are happy to lend our expertise in color management and evaluation to SGIA,” said Bobby Congdon, assistant director, Sonoco Institute.
