Benefits to your business
Take out the guesswork
Forget about comparing your prints against a swatch book that could be faded or dirty. Use the Nix Print Pro software for objective color measurement that doesn’t rely on the human eye.
Prove without a doubt that your prints are within the target of your reference color. Remove the back-and-forth and subjectivity of “it doesn’t look right”. The proof is in the data.
Spend less time trying to get the color right. The Nix Print Pro software lets you measure what’s coming off the press, determine if it’s in spec, and whether or not you can get it in spec simply by changing the density.
Reduce wasted materials by confirming your colors are within spec before and during the print job. Easily and quickly make adjustments throughout the job, reducing ink and paper waste.
Clear direction for density improvement
Instantly identify potential errors when measuring your ink density and get easy and actionable direction for improvement. Open the density graph for more details on how close your sample is to the target.
The measurement passes Delta E tolerance (the plot falls below the Delta E threshold). Minor adjustments to the density could possibly improve Delta E further.
In spec is possible
The measurement doesn’t pass Delta E but can be corrected to pass. Adjust density in accordance with the instructions.
In spec not possible
The measurement fails Delta E tolerances and cannot be adjusted to pass. An ink correction or maintenance of the press may be required.
Easily export your measurement results for distribution. The summary identifies whether the job passed its tolerances, and provides a breakdown of your ink Delta E values. Custom branding for your letterhead is available.
Nix Print Server
The Nix Print Server provides an excellent way to centralize all spot colors within your organization.
By making use of the Print Server you can be confident that all your Nix Print Pro workstations have current access to the right library values without having to manually synchronize.

Hear from the experts
Using the Nix Print Pro software, I have been able to streamline my collaboration and R&D with the printer.
I am a color theory educator currently developing reference tools for artists that require precise color measurements. As someone without a technical background, I was struck by the program’s ease of use and visualizations.
