    This month’s Program Event, GLOBAL COLOR COMMUNICATION, takes place tomorrow, April 15th, at the National Arts Club.

    In today’s digital world, controlling color can be a challenge. From files to proofs to the final printed product, how do we keep something as subjective as color a constant?

    BRIAN PAYNE, C.E.O. of Embassy Graphics, has 42 years of experience in this industry, beginning his career in sales for web offset printing. Sixteen years ago, Brain started Embassy Graphics, a full service prepress house. Embassy Graphics began as a conventional prepress house and morphed to a completely digital workflow with plants in Winnipeg and Toronto.

    GINA SIGMON, Director of Technical Sales and Gravure for Quebecor World, has over 27 years of experience in the printing industry and is currently the Chairperson of SWOP and a member of the GHENT Workgroup, an international assembly of industry specialists who develop and disseminate specifications for best practices in graphic arts workflows.

    Our distinguished speakers will discuss trends, tools, and standards for achieving great color in our global environment. They will address proofing trends, profiles, and the best way to communicate color instructions and guidance to your printer or prepress house. Their combined knowledge and expertise will foster us both a valuable learning experience and a most engaging evening!
