Press release from the issuing company

G7 Qualification is sought-after recognition of excellence in printing

Alexandria, Virginia – IDEAlliance, a global non-profit association guiding media production best practices, specifications, and standards, announced surpassing a milestone 1,000 print service providers actively qualified in its G7® Master Qualification Program.

G7 is an international specification (TR015) for achieving consistent gray balance in color reproduction across a wide range of proofing, digital, and printing processes. The IDEAlliance G7 Master Qualification designation identifies print service providers, prepress providers, and creative agencies that excel in implementing the G7 Proof-to-Print Process, a calibration method that allows printers to achieve a visual simulation across multiple print platforms.

“The benefit of printing to a common neutral gray scale is the heart of the G7 method,” commented Joe Fazzi, Vice President Media Production Technologies for IDEAlliance. “Achieving brand color consistency across the globe on multiple platforms is critical to meeting the needs of brand owners and we are pleased that so many of the world’s best printers are finding success with the G7 training program.”

A database of G7 Master Qualified companies, searchable by location as well as by print service capabilities, can be found on the IDEAlliance website at https://meetings.idealliance.org/eSeries/Directory/ . To engage a G7 Expert to conduct a G7 Master Qualification program for your facility, search for a G7 Expert near you here: https://meetings.idealliance.org/eSeries/Directory/ .
