A GMG Corrugated Excellence Company.

Vanguard is taking digital print color management to the next level utilizing GMG’s unique color saving color profile technology called TurboG. These TurboG profiles provide excellent color reproduction along with properly managing ink consumption. GMG’s OpenColor provides the greatest control in color management for digital print with results that truly match conventional print.

GMG’s TurboG ink saving color profiles will also reduce ink usage for the HP C500 thus saving the company resources and reducing its environmental footprint.  Vanguard also utilizes GMG’s ColorProof which provides the quickest response to our customers with a content proof that also represents true digital press conditions.

GMG has recognized these efforts by certifying Vanguard Digital Packaging as a GMG Corrugated Excellence Company.

Our digital printing enables in-line, high-speed, and on-demand capabilities.

Vanguard Companies is one of the first in the world to install HP’s new ground-breaking C500 technology. The benefits of our digital printing include lower minimal order quantities, less inventory management, improve in-hand marketing, variable print, no printing plate cost, faster speed to market and use of water-based inks.

With the PageWide C500’s single-pass thermal inkjet technology and direct-to-board advanced media handling, we optimize the entire production floor with the flexibility to print one to thousands of boxes even with last-minute changes. We can quickly run packaging and display campaigns in offset quality without the need for lamination. Consistently superb quality is possible on both coated and uncoated papers.
