FLEXO Magazine : Sustainable Winter 2011
Varn goes on to say, “The reduced waste with expanded gamut is far superior to what you get with CMYK and line col- ors. It provides a lot of flexibility and a broader range of col- ors. We are no longer limited to the number of printing decks; we are limited only by the imagination of our customers.” The specific color set evolved through a series of intense trial and error, according to Varn. “We fingerprinted on every substrate that we run in the plant and worked with a number of different separators,” he says. While the general belief is that expanded gamut is less accurate than using spot colors, Varn sharply disagrees. He sees expanded gamut printing as more scientific than traditional ink mixing and running spots. To make it happen, he insists, the company goes out of its way to hire employees who are open minded. “It’s better to have someone with mini- mal experience than someone who has been doing the same thing forever and ever and won’t change,” he says. The proof, it turns out, is in the pudding. Varn declares, “Our customers are very pleased, because we are much more consistent, and we have the delta E numbers to back that up.” n Accredo taps into some of the most state-of-the-art equipment in today’s flexible packaging industry.
