Mactac and TunedColor Inc. Go Global

STOW, Ohio – August 7, 2007 – Color management knows no boundaries. Already solid partners in the United States, MACtac® Graphic Products and TUNEDColor Inc. are taking their color management services international – now serving customers in Central Europe with a wide range of International Color Consortium (ICC) Media profiles.

“Color management and ICC profiles are the most important things that a printer can use to maximize image quality and minimize waste on a particular media,” said Mark Nelson, Digital OEM Specialist, MACtac Graphic Products. “Profiles take into consideration the printer model, ink formulation, RIP software, media and output resolution to create a consistently high-quality image. Any changes to these variables can cause a noticeable difference in the final image.”

With the opening of a new office in Belgium, TUNEDColor and MACtac are able to provide on-site color consultation to qualifying customers in the United States and Central Europe, as well as provide ICC profiles worldwide. Together the companies provide the latest innovations in color science to printers using MACtac digital media, including IMAGin® vinyl products and MACtac Permacolor® overlaminates.
