About bptc

At the helm of The Big Print Training Company stands Udo Swaluë. The Big Print Training Company was founded in 2007, armed with a wealth of enthusiasm and experience in the realm of large format printers.

My career began at Macdermid, where I acquired the essential tools and techniques to embark on my own journey.

I my last years with McDermid ColorSpan I came in contact with the Caldera RIP software. We needed  RIP software with a good color management system inside, that could handle the 12 color setup that we had on a printer in our product line as well as all of our other printers. I already knew that reaching the right color was very important and that put me on my path to discover everything there was/is to know about the wonderful world of color profiling in all it’s forms. Nowadays I color profile on anything that is printable (paper, textile, carpet, glas, etc.)

Today, I can draw upon over 30 years of technical and practical experience in large format printing, coupled with more than 20 years of expertise in color profiling. I’m always eager to hear your questions or challenges. Feel free to reach out, and together, we’ll navigate the path forward.
