Printing errors cost you far more than paper and ink

Do you remember the last major misprint? Or have you ever imagined when the next mistake will come and what will happen then?

Why is that so important? Because the consequences of an printing error are far more than the cost of paper and ink. There are also …

… the often overlooked consequences of an error

  • The really expensive values are hidden behind the products for which your printed products serve as packaging or as description:
    • pharmaceutical products with high regulatory requirements
    • high-priced cosmetic products
    • sensitive food
    • annual reports with legally explosive details
  • The consequences of errors for these products range from complaints and compensation payments to product recalls.
  • The loss of trust of your customers – the image damage can in the worst case lead to an order lock for follow-up orders.
  • The uncertainty of your employees due to the fear that the mistake could occur again. Which, in addition to the limited productivity, can also have the consequence that the concentration on the old error affects the finding of new errors.

And what’s the worst error of all?

Sure, you’re doing everything humanly possible and technically feasible right now to avoid mistakes. That’s a good thing!

But keep in mind: The greatest danger is not to make mistakes, but to overlook mistakes.

Because a mistake that no one has seen except you is nowhere near as tragic as a mistake you haven’t seen yourself.

With this in mind, let us take a closer look at the current status of your quality assurance. And you will see how you can take your quality assurance to a whole new level.

Three typical application fields

You can apply d’accord Scan for automated quality control at different levels of the print production. The sooner you use the control, the sooner you recognize production errors and can fix them more cheaply. The later you use the control, the more closely you check the final product, as it ultimately reaches the client or the consumer.

Control of print production.

Check early while production starts.

Before wasting time and material: The scan and precise digital examination of a printed sheet takes about a minute. Then you can specifically review all abnormalities on screen.

Check samples from large volume print jobs.

Unlike the inspection with film proofs, the digital inspection gives you constant results without fatigue and takes very little time: you can perform your assessments at a glance.
