Welcome to Colour Mechanics, the only organisation in India involved in training of all print verticals ie creative, design, print suppliers & print buyers to understand modern day print and colour reproduction technology.

The training sessions are based on internationally accepted PSO (Process Standard Offset) specifications.

Print is a manufacturing process with solid foundation establishing it as a science with defined specifications and tolerances. The fact print is still considered an art is the biggest misconception of modern day print industry.

Colour Mechanics is the only organisation in India involved in training of all print verticals ie creative, design, print & print buyers to understand modern day print technology based on PSO (Process Standard Offset) specifications.

Colour mechanics is headed by Ugra certified experts who are involved in training, setting up & certification of print facilities by Ugra, a Swiss centre of competence for media and print technology.

Why Standardise?

We have to understand an everyday situation of our industry.

Printing is now an established Measureable Manufacturing Process, production engineers say for all the manufacturing processes:

If you can measure it, You can control it,
If you can control it, You can reproduce it!

How Standardisation Helps?

Everything in the process becomes PREDICTABLE…

ISO Specifications

Following standards are
complied to:

As there is no better way to define length or weight,

There is no way to print better than STANDARDS!
