Proof Positive: How the Epson T5000 Helps Ensure Perfect Package Printing

Epson T5000 at Printed Specialties

Printed Specialties prints packaging for some of the most prominent brands in the world. Given that, and the complexities of the printing process, every step that brings package design to printed reality must be spot-on.

One of those steps is the positioning proof, which ensures that what goes to press is properly placed. This is the final step before the design goes to the plate for printing.

Printed Specialties recently added an Epson SureColor T5000 technical printer to bring additional speed and accuracy to this crucial step.

“We use the T5000 for position proofs (digital bluelines) because we do not want to find mistakes when we go to plate. We’ve already made a color contract proof on our Epson 9900, and this verifies what will be on the press,” explains Adam Van Horn, pre-media manager for Printed Specialties. “It’s fantastic. It’s super-fast and that’s the main goal. It’s far superior to the other inkjet printers we had. We can view small type and part numbers on the proof to verify one more time the gang of different items are accurate, and that’s critical for us. We use LexJet 46# Simple Bond WR paper and let it fly.”
