Waste reduction with ImageMark’s tightly controlled processes.


A leading manufacturer of instruments and chemistries was frustrated with the amount of waste in the production of their water testing kits. The testing strips in their kit react in a color gamut when dipped in water which is then compared to a bottle label. The color match must be within a tightly controlled range for effectiveness of the test. They were experiencing a rejection rate that resulted in 35% waste of their printed material.


ImageMark worked closely to understand this manufacturer’s requirements and developed a solution that started with file creation through print production. Quality control steps involve the client’s review and testing to eliminate unnecessary costs.


The reduction of waste moved from 35% with their prior print vendor to a resounding 3% waste with ImageMark!
