Using spot colors is widespread in both offset and flexo printing, particularly when it comes to packaging. They deliver visual impact important to customers; shelf appeal, brand color management (think Coca-Cola red), and fine colored text and large flat areas of color. The results are often impressive and pleasing the customer is important, but at what cost?

With KODAK SPOTLESS Software you can deliver the visual impact of spot colors without the cost. It is an intuitive, easy-to-use solution for replacing spot colors with accurate recipes for 4, 5, 6 and 7-color process printing. With SPOTLESS Software, you can tackle even the most demanding artwork while controlling cost and maximizing efficiency.

Primary Benefits:

  • Deliver the impact of spot color while reducing inefficiencies associated with them
    • Extended process color builds allow you to combine jobs that traditionally require separate print runs
    • With one ink set providing a wide color gamut, jobs do not require multiple runs through the press, or the use of extended multi-unit presses
    • Wash-ups between jobs are unnecessary, and downtime is significantly reduced
  • Improve customer satisfaction
    • Deliver spot color impact at competitive prices
    • Expand creative options to meet brand owner objectives by enabling designers to incorporate multiple spot colors, rather than be limited by conventional spot color production process

Software Capabilities

  • Transforms a library of spot colors into easy-to-manage, digital libraries of process color recipes that are based on a print condition-typically an ink set, press, and substrate
  • Up to 7-color process modeling (n-color) for BOTH flexo and offset
  • Flexible ink combination controls to tailor how the software chooses recipes
  • Database with web reports for tracking and analyzing results over time
