Contact us about this consultant
Piccus 4 Color is in the business of implementing color management solutions, installing and maintaining color systems and RIPs, training people in color management and generating profiles. Certified in the G7 GRACol process to maintain color management control on proofers and presses, while utilizing ICC profiles to create accurate characterizations of those devices. These proofers are accurately predicting the color of the printing standards they have been tasked to emulate. Piccus 4 Color has significantly reduced their prepress costs by maintaining these contract proofers in proper color balance. I also consult and train in ICC color management software and workflows, including X-Rite, Kodak-Creo, Gretag Macbeth, ICS Remote Director, Monaco and ColorBlind. Setting up Proofers and RIPs to accurately predict color output has been a large part of my work using GMG, EFI XF, Absolute Proof, ORIS, BEST, Onyx PosterShop, Wasatch, ColorBurst and many other state of the art workflows. I was the Technical Support and Training Manager for Color Solutions, Inc. (ITEC), creators of the well-known ColorBlind Suite of Color Management Software. I train and provide application support for a wide variety of clients using ICC color management. These clients encompass the film, photo, printing, packaging, newspaper and digital reproduction industries.
