CAMBRIDGE, UK—Prepress company Hamillroad Software announces that Marvaco, a prepress provider and flexographic plate maker for brands and printers, is to take its Bellissima Digitally Modulated Screening to market in the Nordics.

Recognized as one of the leaders in expanded gamut (EG), Marvaco recognized the key role Bellissima DMS can offer to add value in the move to Marvaco EG by converters.

“As a team, we are all very excited to be announcing this partnership.

Bellissima screening is the key that unlocks the path to easy, high-fidelity EG printing and will be the catalyst driving a change in the flexographic industry. Bellissima and Marvaco will be formidable forces. We welcome the Marvaco team into the network and see a great future as we advance Bellissima and EG printing.”
