The Rotherham company delivers a fast speed of service for trade only customers. Hine Labels, a 42 staff operation has significant firepower with a battery of five flexo presses alongside both Xeikon and Screen Trupress digital presses.
When Hine Labels was looking for better colour consistency between its Xeikon dry toner and Screen Trupress UV digital ink devices it turned to technical colour specialists Colour Engine for help.
Bill Hine, director at Hine Labels, explained: ‘When we started we had quite a few issues with colour. Consistency was lacking from device to device, process to process, month to month, year to year. We weren’t the only ones; other label printers were telling us that they also had issues with consistency of colour with pressesand with front with consistency of colour with presses and with front ends similar to the ones we had.'

DG3 and Enfocus News

Enfocus Switch

DG3 and Enfocus News

Print and communications specialist, DG3 has been using Enfocus software for many years, so when faced with the challenge of implementing client specific workflows without increasing costs, DG3 was happy to turn to UK Enfocus reseller, Colour Engine for help. 

DG3’s Prepress Manager, Dax Britton, shares his thoughts and experience of integrating Enfocus Switch across the business:

“We were happy with PitStop Server and PitStop Pro but we had a hot-folder based workflow and needed more front-end capacity to take on new customers. When Colour Engine offered us a fully-supported 30-day trial of Enfocus Switch, we jumped at the chance!

Colour Engine Rev Up for Membership

Colour Engine the ‘go to’ guys for high-end colour management have joined FESPA UK Association.


For the past seven years Colour Engine have been working with both very large and small POS printers in the UK and have a great track record of looking after their clients.

Mark Anderton MD at Colour Engine, comments: “There’s nobody else quite like us -we’re an interesting hybrid of software distributer, consultancy and communications rolled into one, offering excellent technical knowledge and straightforward advice that is too often lacking from some operations.

“Better colour whilst using less ‘digital ink’ realised by the intelligent use of GCR is just one of the wins Association members may be interested in, but there are many more. We know our way around all the Print Standards and our experience across digital, litho and flexo gives us an unequalled breadth of knowledge.

“We joined FESPA UK Association because we liked their professionalism and enthusiasm to help their members and we hope to be able to grow our business through building relationships. For POS and speciality printers we need to further understand their issues and so our approach is conversational.

“We offer first class Colour Management Services, pre-sales, specification, workflow, specialist lighting services, colour accurate monitor proofing, digital closed loop, installation, training, documentation, support, consultancy along with instrumentation and hardware where needed.

“We’re excited to be working with FESPA UK Association and plan to build a great partnership with the Association and its members.”
