New PDF Specification for Packaging

The Ghent Workgroup (GWG) is proud to announce its GWG2015 PDF Specification for Packaging. Created by their packaging committee, this specification addresses offset, gravure and flexographic printing. 

Leading the creation of this specification were the chairs of the packaging committee, Steve Carter - SVP Technology from Phototype, Christian Blaise of bleuprocess and Lieven Plettinck of Esko. They comment: “Because of the unique requirements inherent in the process, we needed to develop a dedicated PDF Specification for packaging. Built upon the ISO PDF/X-4 standard, the GWG2015 PDF Specification for Packaging meets that need and addresses the specific issues relevant to package and label production.”
