The Honolulu Star-Advertiser in an effort to reduce production cost whilst maintaining its record of consistent high color quality embarked upon a project to research and subsequently install ink optimization software. After tests the newspaper selected ProImage OnColor ECO. Not only was it found to be the easiest to use it also provided the best results.

“Our records show that we are saving over 25% of our previous color ink consumption. Annual savings will run into six figures ” said production director Marty Black. “We achieve more consistent start-ups and top quality in fewer copies on start-up.

“OnColor ECO fits well into our workflow. Files are sent to ECO prior to the page output and press ink presetting systems. It runs seamlessly. Since we started running it we have had no problems at all. Also the people at ProImage have been great their service and support has been exceptional.”

The daily Star-Advertiser publishes approximately 40 full color pages with a print run of about 125 000 copies. The company also prints many commercial jobs each week.
