April 27, 2020  By PrintAction Staff

The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) is now offering its colour management boot camps, traditionally held on-site at its Fairfax, Virginia headquarters or across the country by SGIA-certified instructors, are being offered virtually to continue to offer training and education while stay-at-home orders are in effect.

SGIA is offering a special discount for those looking to improve their colour management processes and be able to implement these tips and tricks when companies across the country return to full operation. Registration for the virtual boot camp is now live and available at this link.

Many colour management boot camps are being offered in the coming weeks through SGIA-certified colour instructors. All boot camps provide attendees with an in-depth look at colour theory and principles, the goals of colour management, device calibration, time-tested procedures, newest print standards, spot colours, print verification and more.


The current schedule is as follows:

  • April 27-30: RPImaging Inc. colour management boot camp
    Instructor: Dan Reid
  • May 4-8: Colour Management Group colour management boot camp
    Instructor: Ben Starr
  • May 11-14: Alder Colour Solutions colour management boot camp
    Instructor: Dan Gillespie
  • May 18-21: Nazdar colour management boot camp
    Instructor: Cami Kesinger

“SGIA’s colour management boot camps are always in demand, though typically offered in person, so we have established a way to offer interested participants uninterrupted training to be able to continue advancing their color knowledge even through this unusual time,” Ray Weiss, SGIA’s director of colour management, said in a statement. “Those in attendance will have the opportunity to learn from the industry’s top instructors and walk away not only with confidence, but a complete set of powerful new skills. The focused, small-class setting allows attendees to master key principles of colour management.”
