Luke Wooldridge of Kayell Australia has recently become a partner of Fogra, and can now provide onsite support to printers wishing to gain press certification according to the ProcessStandard Offset (PSO) – ISO 12647-2.

According to Robert Gatto, sales and marketing director, Kayell Australia, becoming a partner of Fogra for PSO certification will be a good fit with Kayell’s ISO certified product range. “For several years Kayell have supplied industry leading products that comply with ISO standards for monitors, lighting, file separation and contract proofing.

In order for print and media companies to gain PSO certification an industry certified trainer must be present on site to evaluate and refine each step in the production cycle. Attaining PSO – ISO 12647-2 is an excellent marketing instrument for these companies to demonstrate their quality to the outside world. The PSO defined production process will create a reproducible quality standard from correct file separation to the final printed product, resulting in fewer errors and smoother production. From the client’s perspective, customers can be sure that a PSO certified company can reliably produce print to the highest levels in the industry time and time again.
