Shawnee, KS - Nazdar Consulting Services announces regional training classes now available to printing
industry professionals for the topics of color management workflow and hazardous material handling. Taught by

Training will cover basic and intermediate information over the span of two days.
Increase Your IQ (Image Quality) is a class where attendees will learn to use "one" color target to effectively

Color Management systems, regardless of their printing process. This class is recommended to anyone facing
color challenges, including people interested in ICC profiling, Color Managers, Print Production Managers, and
Prepress, Digital, Offset, Flexo, and Screen Technicians.
Along with comprehensive training, attendees will receive a software copy of CATZper Color Approval and
Tolerancing by Perception, a breakthrough system of software and training that will deliver the first major
innovation in color matching since the introduction of L*a*b* color tolerancing. Valued at $1500, this color
management system will result in reduced press down time and job rejections due to color matching issues.
