Digital printing processes are now being used
more and more frequently in textile printing as well as in the print production of products
for interior design. Industrial inkjet technology, for example,
is used to decorate surfaces of flooring, such as parquet and laminate, furniture and
other wood-like materials. 90% of the wall and floor tiles made in Europe
are already being produced with ceramic digital printing systems. The advantages of digital production printing systems for smaller print runs and shorter
run lengths with changing designs also come into play for the creation of such textiles
for interior design as bedding, furniture fabrics, rugs and curtains. ColorGATE now presents Colorrizer. A new colorization software designed to generate colorways with a color-accurate preview on the monitor (soft proof)
and to create step-and-repeat patterns for all these applications. Thanks to Colorrizer, the design is already developed in the working color space of the production system so that the process-dependent printing colors can be taken into account
and exploited fully directly during the design process. This procedure makes it easier for design to work together with production. As a result, Colorrizer is able to transform
previously complicated color matching into more efficient processes, which means that,
for the designer and the digital printing producer, working on the basis of trial and
error is now a thing of the past. The data created by the designer can be used directly
in production, which translates into real savings in terms of time and material and
thus, significant cost savings as well. This additional time and material can be invested in creating a larger selection of variants or increase the frequency of new collections. Whether or not new color trends will work can be checked just as easily because Colorrizer is equipped with an option for generating colorways quickly and easily; color combinations in high demand can be tested directly in the design. Complementary color palettes can be
created just as quickly and easily and altered as desired. In addition to TIFF data, the system also supports multi-channel Photoshop files and files from other image-processing programs, whereby Colorrizer always uses the production color mode analog to the final
production printing system, such as CMYK, multi-channel or n-color, so that allowances can be made for individual production conditions at any time. In addition, Colorrizer enables color-accurate soft proofs on the screen as well as paper
printouts in combination with Productionserver to save time and money. With a tool as efficient as Colorrizer from ColorGATE, you will never again be flying color-blind when creating a new design. Color-accurate multi-color coloration on-the-fly. When the color recipes are selected, Colorrizer allows you to make manual changes easily so
that you always end up with the right color results, even for different production processes
or materials. Color channels can be altered manually or even completely switched on or
off. This makes it possible to perfectly color-coordinate even different products.
The step-and-repeat function is an important feature in Colorrizer and allows the generation of pattern repeats in full production width, whereby drops can be defined right down to the last millimeter. The file can then be processed using RIP software, ColorGATE Productionserver,
for example, and then generated in full length. This increases productivity and keeps the
file size small. If the file is created using LAB color values, it can, of course,
also be processed using any other RIP software. Colorrizer from ColorGATE comes equipped with the Value Pack 365 – a software-maintenance and support contract – to ensure customer access to software updates and remote support for the period of one year.
