About us

Colorware products represent the combined vision of two partnered companies. Colorware BV, based in Wassenaar, The Netherlands and Colorware USA, based in Chicago, IL USA. Together we are a young and innovative software development team focused on color measurement. We specialize in solutions for full color control of all printing processes, and for easy communication of the color behavior of the final printed product to quality managers and print buyers.

Our main product is MeasureColor (formerly known as PressView), the leading solution for color measurement across all printing technologies. More than 1000 systems have been installed in many countries all over the world. New is MeasureColor Reports, for easy overview of the quality of all your print production via a browser.

Colorware BV was established in 2005 and has grown into a team of color and software professionals with offices in the Netherlands. Colorware USA was established in 2016 to primarily support the North American market while continuing to grow and develop our software. Colorware USA maintains five offices across the United States to market and support our products. As a team, it is our goal to develop and produce innovative software products that can make life easy for users of color critical workflows: for Printers, Print quality managers, Ink manufacturers, Brand managers and Print buyers.


At Colorware, we believe in a print process without quality issues. We believe in cost efficient solutions where hitting that color standard is no longer rocket science. That is why we develop state-of-the-art solutions for print & packaging professionals. To help you achieve the highest print quality, every day, every where…


Colorware is independent from any other hardware manufacturer. We do not force you to use just one specific piece of hardware. One of our key benefits is that we try to support as many third party systems as we can, allowing our users to make full use of previously made investments.

Open, two-way color communication

At Colorware, we strongly believe that color communication should be simple and open. Our customers should be able to use external data like custom color references without restrictions. We also believe that it is of great benefit to our customers that we share our data to other systems as well, even if those system might be considered our ‘competitors’.

Ease of use

On of the key aspects of our solutions is the ‘ease of use’. Every part of the software interface is focused on you, the user. Our user-friendly, innovative interface has been highly appreciated world-wide. Measuring and analyzing color quality in print production can be difficult enough. Let’s agree not to make it any harder…
