This Color & Color Managementcourse presents the most important elements in color reproduction for printing devices and how to control and correct color at different stages during the reproduction process. We will discuss the roles of measurement, computation and interpretation of data; how to derive and represent a color gamut; the advantages and limitations imposed by color specification - focusing on their implications for color quality of the reproduction. The importance of test images, reference images and color standards will be highlighted. A number of demonstrations will illustrate the key points of the tutorial course.

2001 Digital Printing Summer Camp Program
July 30 - August 3, 2001

IMI Completed Programs


IMI's 2002 Digital Printing Summer Camp is being held at the Sugarloaf Grand Summit Hotel located at the Sugarloaf/USA base village. The 120 rooms and suites offer modern comfort in natural splendor and appeal of the Western Maine Mountains.

Hotel reservations are the responsibility of each registrant. To receive the special meeting rate of $80 for single or double occupancy, you must identify yourself as a registrant to IMI's 2002 Digital Printing Summer Camp. Early booking is advised as the reduced rate is guaranteed only until July 8, 2002. Phone +1-800-527-9879 and ask for Lynn Chase to make hotel reservations.

All Sugarloaf Grand Summit Hotel rooms are air conditioned, equipped with TV and VCRs, and the hotel has its own health club facility. The Sugarloaf Sports and Fitness Center, outdoor pool and tennis courts are also available for guest use at no additional charge. Outdoor recreation possibilities such as golf, hiking, canoeing, mountain biking, rafting, moose watching, etc. abound in the area.


Sugarloaf/USA is a major eastern ski resort and summer recreational area located in Carrabassett Valley in the western mountains of the State of Maine. Celebrating their 50th year of operation last year, Sugarloaf/USA offers a wide range of summer activities including golf, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, swimming, white water rafting, canoeing or just relaxing in a beautiful, natural environment. It is a great place to combine your learning experience at the 2002 Digital Printing Summer Camp and a family vacation where you can experience the wonders of nature and healthy outdoor activities such as:


The Sugarloaf Golf Club is the number one rated course in Maine and Golf Digest rated the course one of the top 75 resort courses in the United States. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the 18-hole course is known for its quality of play and scenery. It plays through the valley with mountains overhead and winds over and around the Carrabasset River.

The awe-inspiring 18-holes that make up the Sugarloaf Golf Club & Golf School have proven, for so many golfers, an unforgettable experience. An experience punctuated by the rugged, demanding terrain that is the hallmark of mountain golf.

Golf Digest called Sugarloaf Golf Club a "top 10 for memorability" and a "top 10 for aesthetics." And its legendary designer, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., calls it "One of the most spectacular courses I've ever been associated with."


Hiking opportunities abound in the Western Maine Mountains. You can hike the 4,237 foot summit of Sugarloaf right outside the hotel or to one of the surrounding mountains in the Bigelow Range. You can also connect with the Appalachian Trail. Hiking trails for all abilities provide wilderness beauty on many miles of alpine terrain.

Mountain Biking

Sugarloaf/USA maintains over 50 miles of mountain bike trails featuring some of the choicest single track in New England, wide open dirt roads, the historic Narrow Gauge Railroad bed (don't worry-the tracks and ties have been removed) along the picturesque Carrabassett River and a trail network that has supported one of the biggest mountain bike races in the East - The Widowmaker Challenge.

White Water Rafting

The Kennebec River is one of the most popular whitewater rafting runs in the country. It combines a beautiful wilderness setting with Class 5 rapids and narrow passages. A full day Kennebec trip is a great family or group adventure for ages 12 and up. Trips can be arranged with numerous rafting companies and Sugarloaf/USA has an exclusive partnership with Norther Outdoors, a premiere whitewater outfitter.

Moose Watching

Maine's infamous moose love the Carrabassett Valley. Hotel staff can direct you to spots where you will have a good chance of seeing moose or you can join organized "Moose Cruises." At the very least, you'll enjoy great wilderness scenery and the setting sun over Crocker Mountain.

Planning Your Supplemental Recreation

We could go on about fly fishing, canoeing, swimming in a crystal clear mountain stream, relaxing wilderness picnics, etc. but we think you get the idea that combining some outdoor, wilderness related activities with IMI's 2002 Digital Printing Summer Camp would be fun and easy to do. Most of these activities can be done on your own or you can make arrangements by contacting Lynn Sundelin at Sugarloaf/USA at 207-237-2000.

When you register for one or more of the courses at IMI's 2002 Digital Printing Summer Camp, we will provide you with an information package covering summer activities and recreational opportunities at Sugarloaf/USA and in the adjacent areas.

Getting to Sugarloaf/USA

To access all this wonderful natural beauty, it is obvious that Sugarloaf/USA is not located in an urban center! However, it is closer than you think.

For those flying into the Northeastern U.S., we recommend flying into one of the following airports and renting a car so that you can enjoy the wonderful scenic auto routes throughout New England as you travel to Sugarloaf/USA.

Portland International Airport, Portland, Maine - 2 ½ hour drive
Bangor International Airport, Bangor, Maine - 2 ½ hour drive
Manchester Airport, Manchester, New Hampshire - 3 ½ hour drive
Logan International Airport, Boston, Massachusetts - 4 hour drive

For those of you located in the Northeastern U.S. or once you've rented your car, you will want to plan your trip to and from Sugarloaf/USA to pass by such places as L.L. Bean in Freeport, Maine, the Old Port Waterfront District of Portland, Maine, numerous small coastal and lake communities and many of the other attractions of Maine - that's why it says "Vacationland" on our license plates.

Again, when you register for one or more of the courses at IMI's 2002 Digital Printing Summer Camp, we will provide you with an information package with detailed directions and options for enhancing your trip, whether it be just for a brief visit or more extended vacation.
