Can LED lighting in print shops improve the quality of the printing produce?
You are inside the print shop, looking at a brochure you have just finished creating. The over- head office lighting seems to give you adequate brightness to view your work, so you think. A client from the University of South Florida needs the brochure finished today to display to the upcoming new semester students. To your eyes, the brochure looks perfect, but when the client comes to pick up his brochure he is very unsatisfied. The green and gold color on the USF Bulls logo is lime green and yellow instead. You the designer failed to pick up on this, the client is frustrated, and disappointed with the outcome you both face a lose-lose situation. You ask yourself, “Why did the print not come out in the proper color the client requested?”
The answer lies dead in your face as you stare up directly at the root of the problem. The lighting in your office isn’t giving off the proper illumination and color rendering. The dim fluorescent tubes are worn down and some of them are burnt out. Your shop cannot continue to work under these conditions if it wishes to maintain its status as the best in south Florida.
How can you solve this problem and not fail another client?
Well, we must look into LED lighting in print shops and companies. If you are new to light emitting diodes (LEDs), just think of them as the new modern state of lighting applications we use in our world today. It has better brightness, more energy efficient, and a longer duration of life compared to fluorescent light. Our sunlight gives off a natural type of brightness that is best for properly making out things our eyes see. In poorly lit offices, the fluorescent bulbs give off poor illumination. This is associated with bad health conditions varying from eye strain, headaches and or fatigue. In work environments, such as warehouses and factories, the outcomes of a dark or dimly lit workplace can lead to injuries or failure to properly complete tasks.
LED technology is the answer to this inadequate lighting problem. Mimicking natural sunlight at 5000 Kelvin, this lighting system serves as the perfect form of illumination for seeing color accurately. Combining natural and artificial light, this technology is sufficient and suitable at making the workplace a better environment for everyone to be in. Reduced health effects, safer worker environment, better energy efficiency and longer life duration compared to fluorescent bulbs, LED lighting in print shops will lead to excellent results and less problems having to make out color in the work created.
Quality and success for print companies lie in the use of LED technology. You the designer after doing research on this lighting have decided to replace your fluorescent lights with LED light bulbs and look forward to your print shop retaining its highly praised name.
