With PSO certification, the quality of print production can be ensured throughout the entire workflow: starting from the creation data, all the way to the final printing of the product. The PSO also describes appropriate testing devices and control methods through which the production process can be supervised, guided and demonstrated. The goal is to ensure that the production process is as efficient as possible while ensuring that intermediate and final results show predictable color quality.
Each company has its own peculiarities; therefore, it is necessary to conduct a preliminary audit to determine what procedures are necessary for certification or process standardization.
CTP verification and linearization, identification of print density, evaluation of dot gain and realization of plate compensation curves, verification of maintenance of achieved conditions.
Training on color management and proofing systems management including monitor proofing or color proofing. PDF generation and management training and much more.
If you want to support the audit. We will help you in writing procedures and documents for monitoring your quality and processes. Audit simulation and assistance during certification.
Process Standard Offset (PSO) was developed by Fogra in cooperation with the German Federation of Printing and Media Industries. It is a description of an industrialized and standardized procedure for the creation of products in the printing industry. The PSO conforms to the international series of standards ISO 12647, and is therefore internationally recognized as a standard for printing to standard.
In the printing industry, very rarely is data printed where it is created. Customers often deliver jobs to different printers. PSO and ISO 12647 are under constant development in order to promote repeatability of printing. With Fogra PSO, quality becomes measurable, verifiable and reproducible!
