IPB delivers accurate inspection and quality checks on all orders.

 

Efficient proofreading in the pharmaceutical sector is of huge importance, and we understand this. IPB provides accurate inspection on both hard copies and digital files using Global Vision's Scan TVS system, a leading scanner-based artwork comparator that eliminates packaging errors.   Its comprehensive print inspection system verifies the print integrity and all components. 


 

A major source of pharmaceutical product recalls is copy related errors on cartons, labels or inserts.  In fact, over 51% of all product recalls in a six month period were the result of mislabeling according to statistics. The accuracy of printed materials is key to the success of a pharmaceutical company. Imagine the severity of a decimal point accidentally moving from a .20 mg to a 2.0 mg?

 

All of our customers benefit from the implementation of our stringent procedures.  From healthcare, to consumer to food and beverage, every job is evaluated and checked with the highest level of inspection procedures.

 

As an order proceeds through production, there are many quality checks points and procedures in place where we analyze the sample press sheet or digital copy and compare it to the approved client proof.  If anything is found at this stage, it can be corrected before final printing commences - reducing time and money on re-orders and re-works.  This process enables us to ensure no printing imperfections will impact your carton.

 

There is a lot to be said for the proofing team at IPB, and our commitment to always innovate and implement the latest technology available in our industry.  Our clients want innovated solutions.  Our technology delivers.  The proof is in the package

    Women's eight Rowing WinA message from Darcy's Diary - August 6, 2012 7:37 AM

 

It's now been 2 and a half days since our epic race on Thursday and I now have a chance to sit down to a computer. Thanks to all those who have sent messages - I am overwhelmed by the kind notes!

 

A whirlwind of emotion and activity ensued after our race. And it was a great race! We had a solid start (the Americans did have a better one) and we found our "sweet spot" pacing rhythm going into the 2nd 500m. I think we were able to lift and sprint as well as we did due to the efficiency of this middle 1000m rhythm. I never had any doubt that we would hold off the Dutch, and when Lesley made our move call with about 800m to go we just kept charging to the line... I knew we were moving back on the U.S. from the feedback Lesley was giving us and the power behind me was incredible! We said before the race that we were the best prepared as individuals and as a crew to have the race of our lives and I'm proud to say we did it on the day. We left no stone un-turned in training and we had no ounce of energy left to give on the race course... 3 Olympic Games, countless hours of training and we got our Olympic medal! Whew. Relief and happiness were probably the most evident emotions I felt immediately after the race (that and a lot of pain in my legs and lungs).

 

What I wasn't prepared for (what none of us were prepared for) were the flood of emotions that came on the podium dock when we saw our families waving and cheering from the stands. These are the people who believed in us throughout, and for me personally, to have supported me through two 4th places, and to now finally have my hardware; it was an emotional time indeed.

 

The following hours were spent fulfilling media requests (some of you may have caught the CTV interviews), visiting with my family and fiancÚ, Richard, and ultimately crashing into bed around 1am with my mind buzzing. What a feeling!

 

Now we get to enjoy the rest of the Games, take in some sights, party like a rock star, and just enjoy the moments. We are moving into the Athletes' Village tomorrow where we will be staying until the Closing Ceremonies. Richard and I will be taking a much needed vacation to Spain and France afterwards before we fly back to London, ON, pack up our stuff and start the move out west. We are planning to drive across the country seeing as many friends and relatives along the way, with whom I'm really looking forward to re-connecting with.

 

Thanks again and Cheers,

Darcy
