Sun Chemical has developed the Next Generation Customer program to help students obtain the tools they need and hands-on training required to understand every aspect of the ink business in the flexographic printing process.
This past school year, Sun Chemical piloted the program at CPCC. After assessing the needs of the college, Sun Chemical donated its SunMatch computer software to help the college’s flexography students achieve success in the 2016 Phoenix Challenge College Competition, a year long, problem-solving team project which culminates in a formal presentation to a panel of industry judges. SunMatch helps students more accurately achieve the right brand color on a variety of substrates and understand how to achieve colors through scientific numbers.
Throughout the school year, Sun Chemical experts came to the college to teach and give hands-on experience to help students understand every aspect of the ink business in the flexographic printing process.
During the 2016 Flexographic Technical Association’s INFO*FLEX show, students from CPCC presented their rebranded labels for the start-up Triple Whammy Sauces and won awards for the best execution and best design categories of the Phoenix Challenge.
