„Commercial printing has changed significantly due to digitization and requires more and more individual and time-critical solutions for all kinds of printed matter. With years of ColorGATE expertise in conventional printing, especially for prepress, companies are able to take the step to digitization by means of a perfectly coordinated workflow management from the file to the printed product.“
