Color Concepts, a service provider in the visual communications industry, announces it is collaborating with Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives to conduct performance tests and certifications for HP Latex printers, as well as create accurate printer profiles for Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives print materials. The two companies will collaborate on different materials across various applications.

“We know that print shops have been squeezed from both the demand and the supply side in recent years in unprecedented ways, and we want to do our part to ensure that Ritrama by Fedrigoni Self-adhesives products are tested, proven print solutions that are easy to use and cost-effective,” says Daniele Perotti, global graphics product and business development manager at Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Color Concepts to test, profile, and certify our materials — this is only the beginning!”

According to the companies, the collaboration starts with HP Latex certification, created jointly by Color Concepts and HP. The industry-recognized standard guarantees a material’s suitability for its given application and determines its optimal print settings on HP Latex printers. In addition, Color Concepts will profile a subset of the materials for the Epson SureColor SC-R5000(L), Epson’s first large-format printer to feature resin inks.

“This will ensure that adopters of this new machine will be able to use Ritrama by Fedrigoni Self-adhesives products without needing to develop their own printer profiles from scratch,” explains Christo Saayman, operations manager at Color Concepts EU. “By pursuing this collaboration, Ritrama by Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives is increasing the value and ease of use of its product portfolio. We are honored to be involved.”

According to the companies, the collaborative effort is officially underway, and both will continue to make announcements throughout the testing, profiling, and certification process.
