The Sonoco Institute

The Sonoco Institute was created to exploit the synergies that exist between the graphic communications and packaging science departments. It is the only university program in the country with this one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary approach to packaging as a core competency.

Digital Proofing and Prototyping

Event Overview

One of the most reported headaches and problems from the packaging industry is getting predictable color and packaging graphics on press. As proofing and prototyping technology rapidly evolves, the power of proofing solutions to predict color and final appearance presents significant opportunities to drive efficiencies, manage expectations, and shorten time-to-market with new packaging graphics.

A range of proofing technologies will be available for hands-on proof production in breakout sessions including expanded colorant inkjet, continuous and halftone inkjet, monitor soft proofing, digital prototyping, print/cut prototyping, and a variety of color management systems.

Hands-on Sessions:

  • Continuous Tone Inkjet
  • Wide-Format UV
  • Halftone Inkjet
  • Monitor Color Proofing and On-line Collaboration
  • Print / Cut Workflow
  • Virtual Prototyping and Design in 3D

Presentations Topics Include:

  • Proofing Technology 101
  • Packaging Considerations for Color Management
  • Managing Expectations through Proofing Workflow
  • Right-the-First-Time on Press
  • Hybrid Proofing Solutions
