In an effort to support the growing number of remote workers who must review and approve colour, the on-demand training explains the basics of colour theory, colour tolerances and sharing digital colour standards. In addition, X-Rite is hosting a series of colour management webinars designed to help attendees optimise their use of colour measurement hardware and software.

By making our eLearning course available for no charge, professionals in the plastics, textiles, paints and coatings, and print and packaging industries can learn tips and best practices for colour management and keep production workflows moving forward during these challenging times.’
