All Digital Workflow

With the steady conversion to digital workflow no longer a trend but a reality in the packaging industry, it is imperative that companies keep pace with technology in order to best serve customers’ needs. Enabling technologies promise improved print quality, repeatability, and reduced turnaround times, all of which are increasingly important in the fast-paced retail markets.

Diamond is poised to take advantage of the powerful capabilities of digital workflow by utilizing the latest all-digital front end technology.

Computer-to-Plate

Diamond’s computer-to-plate (CTP) technology puts you in control. Our Creo Trendsetter® digital thermal platesetter automates the flow of data from prepress directly to a high quality printing plate. The result? A process of supplying and manipulating your graphics that is dramatically simplified:

  • Files can be easily and securely sent and filed
  • Proofing is fast and reliable
  • Printed output is accurate and consistent
  • Changes or corrections are easier
  • Turnaround is faster

Overall, it enables Diamond to be more flexible and more responsive to your needs.

Proofing

Our Epson Stylus Pro proofing system incorporates the latest advancements in photographic inkjet technology. Its extended color gamut, especially within the midtone-to-highlight color ranges, and AccuPhoto HDR screening redefines photographic accuracy, color, and clarity. This ensures color accurate commercial proofs for client approvals.

A second Epson proofing system is capable of printing directly on clear or metallic films, faithfully simulating virtually any metallic color or foil substrate.

It’s a Small Global World After All

Digital technology has brought us all a little bit closer, making it easier to do business with customers all over the world. Our partnership in the Global Packaging Alliance® (GPA) has created an even stronger global presence by offering services to international companies throughout the world. In fact, our CTP capabilities now make it possible to produce the exact same, tight registration printing plates in multiple locations – an important quality consideration for global brands.

Talented Staff

Our experienced and talented staff has the skills and expertise you can trust with your brand. They successfully build the bridge between the creative design and the final product, ensuring that the package comes to life in the retail environment. They will also advise you on the proper implementation of environmental or sustainability-related symbols and artwork, including recyclable/recycled, FSC, and wind energy logos.
