"X-Rite is right on with its Color Control Freak training. I received so much valuable information that, at first, appeared to be overwhelming. But I also received a CD that I can reference again and again to ensure that my prepress work will result in the desired printed product. I can't wait to see how my projects look!" - Bridget Gurtowsky, Gurtowsky Graphics LLC
"Knowledgeable, engaging, real world practice - the presenter gave great insights, reviews and kept on track. Fun. Positive." - Brad Elledge, Nosco.
