Pre-press and Colour Management

We aim to produce the same colour consistently, everytime.


Prepress is the process of preparing your artwork files for printing. We will analyse your files, confirm they meet the standards for high-quality printing, and make any required changes to them so they are suitable for the specified printing method.

After this process, the artwork proof is sent to you as a PDF so you can proofread the artwork content and confirm the label specification. Once you have approved the PDF proof, we will move your order into production.

Colour Management

At Hine, we understand brand identity must be consistent and your labels need to maintain their high standard and colour over time.

We use independent colour management systems to ensure colour consistency.

For Flexography, we use the Pantone Matching System.

For digital print, we have the AlwanColor from Colour Engine optimiser keeping us to the FOGRA 39L Standard.
