Friday, January 22, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Hainburg (Germany) / Minneapolis, MN – CGS Publishing Technologies International, global leader of color management solutions, digital proofing solutions and specially formulated media congratulates Creel Printing on achieving IDEAlliance G7 Master Printer certification.  The integration of ORIS Color Tuner Pro and ORIS Media Factory in to the Creel Printing prepress workflow played an integral role in managing color to allow Creel to achieve G7 Master Printer Status.

Founded in 1953, Creel Printing is one of the most tenured and awarded family-owned enterprises in the world of print. Ranked the 54th largest printer and 9th largest magazine printer nationwide, Creel's capabilities span high-end, full-color web printing; specialty-configured bindery operations; a web-based digital edition tool; integrated publishing solutions; and more. Creel maintains a state-of-the-art, 250,000-square-foot headquarters in Las Vegas and a nearby open-web plant.

The IDEAlliance defines the G7 Master Printer Program as a qualification program that identifies those creatives, premedia and printing companies who have been trained to proof or print to G7 Neutral Print Density Curves and can meet print buyer requirements to produce proofs or printed output conforming to the metrics that reliably render brand images across print locations and different printing types. The qualification mark means that the printer uses the modern technology based on colorimetry, and employ G7 process controls.  Attaining G7 Master Printer status is a competitive goal for those providing creative, premedia and printing services, worldwide. G7 Master Status is granted to a printing facility when a G7 Expert has qualified proofing systems and printing presses. G7 Master Qualification is valid for one calendar year and must be renewed annually.

Allen G. Creel, President of Creel Printing stated, "The team at Creel Printing are honored to have received G7 Master Printer certification.  We have always been and will continue to be, committed to producing a quality product for our customers."

ORIS Color Tuner Pro is the professional contract proofing system of choice for ink jet printers. This complete application combines color management, high-speed output and proofing-specific media.  Winner of the Printing Industries of America InterTech Award, ORIS Color Tuner was the first system of its kind to be certified by SWOP, Fogra, Sicograf, PPA and 3DAP. It includes setup wizards, automatic color matching and automatic printer calibration all within a web-based environment that provides color-matched job control and output anywhere in the world. This way, anyone -not just color gurus! - can easily calibrate a proofer. Superior spot color handling, Hexachrome support, multi-channel Generic Output Profiles and color-accurate halftone proofing all add up to make ORIS Color Tuner Pro the most widely used color proofing software on the market.

ORIS Media Factory provides solutions to the everyday challenges of a printing plant, which go far beyond color management or certification. The components, ORIS Press Matcher, ORIS Normalizer and ORIS Ink Saver can be used individually or combined in one workflow.

Steve Pfeffer, CGS Director of Sales, said, "Creel Printing has been using ORIS Color Tuner for color proofing for many years.  They recently installed ORIS Ink Saver to optimize ink quality.  We congratulate Creel on becoming a G7 Certified Master Printer."

Lewis Lau, CGS Regional Sales Manager went on to say, " The ORIS Media Factory suite, helped Creel Printing achieve higher consistency and quality on all press and prepress aspects of the Creel Printing.  This technology was utilized by Creel to consistently meet the G7 Master requirements."
