Service Offset Supplies (SOS) has reached an agreement to distribute GMG Color’s software products in the UK.

The deal, which is part of GMG’s ambition to carve out a larger share of the British wide-format, commercial printing and packaging markets, will see SOS supply all of GMG’s software products, including ColorServer and ColorProof.

The former is an automated colour conversion solution that eliminates correction cycles and reprints and includes tools that make profiling quicker and less resource intensive. The latter is a proofing solution marketed as ‘ideal in customer-facing applications with demanding colour communication.’

Russell Weller, commercial director at GMG Color UK, commented, ‘With over 50 years’ experience in the printing industry, SOS is the perfect partner to further strengthen our colour management offering into the UK market. Whether it’s high-end colour accurate proofing, realistic mock-ups, or best in class colour conversion, GMG UK, in partnership with SOS, can fulfil the entire end to end colour management process. I am very excited to be working with the entire SOS team and look forward to a successful relationship.’

Omran Anwar, technical manager at SOS added, ‘GMG provides a welcome addition to our portfolio of colour management solutions, with some market leading products fulfilling key niche requirements. GMG has excellent credentials and a great reputation; we can only benefit from having them on board as we strive to maintain our position as the go-to source for colour expertise in the UK print market.’
