GML mostly uses water based inks to ensure our food contact papers conform to appropriate regulations for non migration. We blend the inks on site to match pantones and use a spectrometer to ensure we have a good and consistent colour match. Our presses are equipped with camera monitoring to ensure we can check print quality whilst high speed running.
Plate making is to a high standard allowing us to offer fine detail reproduction of customers’ designs. Ahead of plate making, we will supply an electronic colour proof for signing off.
