Steve Cooney is the Pre-Media Lead for StarPak LTD and is responsible for color management as well as prepress and graphic operations throughout the plant.

Steve has extensive experience working to meet industry and brand requests including extended gamut and altered process designs.
In order to produce consistent and repeatable press runs, Steve has partnered with both design and technical teams to develop color expectations and tolerances that can be matched from initial proofing through a production press run. From the consistent review of results from contract proofing and live data, Steve can now effectively advise on design choices that can impact printability.
