Cary Printing Receives GRACoL 7 Certification

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Morrisville, NC October 14, 2008 – Cary Printing received the GRACoL 7 certification last week through IDEAlliance.  Cary Printing is only one of three printers in North Carolina to hold this certification. GRACoL helps print buyers, designers, and specifiers work more effectively with print suppliers. This book has become the standard of reference and educational medium on the modern lithographic process. It is a tool-kit of standards, tips, and answers to common problems. By following the GRACoL guidelines and recommendations, Cary Printing customers will benefit in the following ways:

- Reduce costs, decrease turn-around times, and avoid re-makes.

- Develop internal guidelines for reliable process controls.

- Acquire print predictability: know what you'll get on press -before you get there.

- Demonstrate printing quality through achievable print guidelines and target goals.

- Build upon the education in fundamentals of printing and developing technologies.

- Essentially, our customers will see the highest level of accuracy and consistency in color output for every printed job.

Brant Chesner, Operations Manager at Cary Printing explains "By printing to a recognized standard we offer our customers repeatable high quality products that exceed expectations. Buyers that require consistency from their print suppliers now finally have a way to print products regionally and be ensured all pieces will look the same."

GRACoL 7 explains the rationale behind the new visual-appearance-based GRACoL press and proofing system, gray balance characterization and calibration methods. The "G" refers to calibrating Gray values. The "7" refers to the seven primary colors:  Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Red, Green, and Blue. In addition, GRACoL 7 will specify a definition for gray balance and recommend characterization data for commercial offset printing.  More information on GRACoL can be obtained at http://www.gracol.org
