INX International Ink Co.
(booth 1121) will provide daily demonstrations at Cannex and Fillex, which takes place May 1-3 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
INX Project Specialist Sarah Jacks is scheduled to inform booth visitors about Color Standardization for Can Design & Decorating from Proof to Production. Each session will begin at 2 p.m. Attendees also will have the opportunity to create, print and leave the booth with their own sample can design.
“Since the INX Color Catalog was introduced one year ago, there are now more than 100 Color Catalogs in the field," Jacks said. "Brand owners and others have discovered how the catalog can bring their brand to life in 2-piece cans in a more efficient and effective manner.”
“In addition to the INX Color Catalog, currently there are several domestic and international can makers who have purchased a CP800 Direct-to-Object inkjet proofing system," Jacks added. "They understand what it brings to the table and found it to be a complementary addition to the design and decorating services they are able to offer to their customers.”
She also plans to show how the INX Color Perfection process works – from initial design process steps through production – to deliver color standardization for can design and decorating.
“INX Color Perfection reduces the lead time that would otherwise be spent waiting for color matches from our laboratories,” Jacks said. “Designing for and printing on metal is a unique process compared to other substrates. Designers now have a fast and accurate means of color selection, and it helps metal decorators with a cost-effective approach to color management and faster turnaround on color.”
The INX Color Perfection process involves several advanced components. The INX 2-Piece Metal Color Catalog provides 600+ removable metal color swatches. It not only allows for comparison purposes but offers truly accurate, reproducible and consistent color on metal. Combined with the INX Digital color library, digital proofing capability and educational tools specific to metal decorating, all help to streamline and standardize the process.
INX will also feature special effect inks and coatings, a complete array of metal decorating products, services and digital printing capabilities such as the CP100 UV Digital Cylindrical printer.
