At the very heart of the “Axiom Way” is our own axiom—a self evident or universally recognized truth—that presents itself nicely in the form of the acronym, PROPS. Axiom has identified five key aspects forming a base to effectively managing color and workflow in the digital large format sublimation environment. We start with (P)redictabilty—establishing and quantifying the desired result and then identifying and achieving these metrics. Axiom has identified over 30 specific “ingredients” to the recipe of proper sublimation. Without the application of the scientific method to managing these variables, predictability cannot be achieved. Once predictability has been reached, we move to (R)epeatability—the setting in place of repeatable methodology to maintain the necessary quality standard to ensure on ongoing positive result. Many factors within the fabric imaging recipe are not constant. Understanding how to diagnose and adjust back to the standard is a key. By establishing predictability and repeatability efficiencies are created to produce the desired (O)perability. Operability is the standard by which high volume production printing can be managed without costly inconsistencies or failures such as paper cockling or insufficient ink/dye drying, etc. that waste time, energy, and material. These intial three benefits of PROPS - Predictability, Repeatability, and Operability acomplish more that simply provide a level of confidence, they merge to maximize (P)rofitability, and profitability enables (S)ustainability, keeping an operation steady and healthy in any business climate while providing the time, energy, peace of mind, and capital for growth.
