Graphcom, a Consolidated Graphics, Inc. company, with capabilities including digital printing, offset printing, web printing, packaging and fulfillment, announced today it has achieved G7 Master Qualified Printer status through IDEAlliance, the non-profit industry organization that develops, educates, and validates best practices in publishing and information technology. Graphcom’s G7 Master Qualified Printer designation highlights the company’s commitment to quality, consistency and color management.
“Graphcom's status as a G7 Master Qualified Printer provides our customers with the confidence that we are providing best-in-class color matching and printed products of the highest quality available,” said Kenny Carter, President of Graphcom. “This certification is just one part of our greater commitment to serve our customers with the best service, quality, and capabilities the print industry has to offer.”
Graphcom has been trained to utilize the new G7 methodology and can produce a press sheet to GRACoL (General Requirements for Applications in Commercial Offset Lithography) targets within acceptable tolerances. By achieving the status of a G7 Master Printer, Graphcom can reliably produce high-quality printing with a close visual appearance from proof to press, as well as from press to press. As a G7 Master Printer, the company will go through a yearly requalification audit to ensure it maintains IDEAlliance calibration and process standards.
Including Graphcom, 60 Consolidated Graphics companies hold the G7 Master Printer status, giving the company the distinction of having the most G7 certified printers in the world.
