COLOR MANAGEMENT

ZENCOLOR LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT

ONE COLOR STANDARD
FROM START TO FINISH

The secret to successful color management requires starting and sticking with one color system throughout the entire production process. Despite the rapid advances in technology, most companies repeatedly rotate between print and digital systems to specify and communicate color information. From the standpoint of implementing proper color management practices, working with two color systems is a big mistake. zenColor® Lifecycle Management (ZCLM) provides a simple ”connect the dots” approach to color management that starts by integrating our universal digital color standard at design inception and using it from start to finish during the entire production process.
