Sun Chemical has partnered with GMG Color, an industry leader in color management technology, to provide customers with a new digital drawdown solution for color swatch production. GMG’s solution, GMG ColorCard, will now be available globally as part of the SunDigiProof service, available within Sun Chemical’s SunColorBox.  

Creating color swatches can be a manual and time-consuming process. Sun Chemical’s SunDigiProof Seine application provides a solution to replace this manual procedure, creating a digitally printed version of the same standard, with increased reliability and color consistency. With the addition of the GMG ColorCard application, the SunDigiProof solution now offers even greater levels of flexibility and convenience.

The SunDigiProof solution is available to fit customers’ technical and price point requirements giving supply chain partners faster and more productive ways to work that reduce cost, drive innovation, and provide flexibility.

With GMG ColorCard, users can easily automate color swatch production at Sun Chemical color centers using global color references for quicker turnaround of color swatches. The software is highly intuitive and can be operated by anyone, regardless of staff availability. This partnership also enables customers to print accurate digital drawdowns at their own locations, giving them the power to create color swatches on demand and removing time, effort and shipping costs from the color communication, matching and approval processes.

“For the packaging supply chain, punctual and precise color communication is critical,” says Marc Levine, director of business development, GMG Color. “We believe that GMG ColorCard is the next evolutionary step in communicating color expectations quickly and accurately. Our partnership with Sun Chemical illustrates that digital drawdowns are the new best practice for color communication. Through this partnership, Sun Chemical customers now have a faster, more accurate way to specify color and drive color success.”

“This partnership continues to build on our innovative set of tools within the SunColorBox,” says Patrice Aurenty, business leader, Sun Chemical. “By partnering with GMG Color, Sun Chemical now offers a best-in-class solution to help customers automate color swatch production, communication, reduce lead times, improve color consistency, and get to market faster.”
