DanagårdLiTHO is one of Sweden’s leading service bureaus when it comes to colour management of images and documents. We offer a tested and quality-assured workflow to ensure predictable results with the best possible quality.
Our work is based on the current ISO standards for quality assurance and predictability, regardless of whether we or someone else is the print supplier, which country it is printed in or the choice of production method used. We are continually developing our processes in this field and can also help with the calibration of devices, creation of ICC profiles and assistance for colour proofing processes, in addition to our standardised solutions.
We are certified according to CGP – Certifierad Grafisk Produktion. You can read more about CGP here or at GFF/SGM’s website. This certification method, as well as other methods, are outlined on this page.
Recommended ICC profiles
Our workflow is optimised for ISO standard profiles and is based on FOGRA standards.
We recommend our own “DanagardLiTHO_Typ1-2_F39_270.icc” or the latest ISO standard (Fogra 39), currently “ISOcoated_v2_eci.icc”.
You can use this colour profile even if you plan to print on uncoated stock. In this case, we will adjust and optimise the colour separation in our workflow. If you still want to colour separate the images using a profile for uncoated stock before sending the files to us, contact us and we will be happy to assist.
