Expanded Color Gamut Seminar

Clemson’s Sonoco Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics is the perfect place to come learn about the ins-and-outs of expanded color gamut (ECG) for package decoration. This seminar uses state-of-the-art software, color management, and production flexographic equipment to allow attendees to put their hands-on the ECG process workflow while engaging with industry experts around this exciting and beneficial technology.

This seminar has recently been modified to fit in a shorter, two and a half day session to better fit your schedule.
