Ramsey Press Awarded G7 Master Printer Status by IDEAlliance
Press release from the issuing company
Mahwah, NJ – October 15, 2007 – Ramsey Press, Inc., the woman-owned, high-quality boutique commercial printer in Northern New Jersey, is pleased to announce that it has recently obtained G7 Master Printer Status from the IDEAlliance Organization.
The IDEAlliance G7 Masters qualification program identifies those printing companies, prepress service providers and agencies that have been trained to use the G7 Proof-to-Print Process and can produce proofs or can print to G7. The G7 Master Qualification mark means that the company uses the most modern technology, techniques, proofing and press controls, and standards required to produce a close visual match from proof to print.
In late August, Ramsey Press, Inc. had contracted with industry expert and G7 Master Certifier, Don Hutcheson of HutchColor to audit, coach and calibrate Ramsey Press's proofing machines to its presses and receive its G7 training. According to Don Hutcheson, "The G7 training I delivered recently at Ramsey Press was one of the easiest and smoothest classes I have ever experienced. The fact that the raw press curves needed only a very slight tweaking to reach the G7 NPDC target curves endorsed, yet again, the carful research behind the G7 process."
As to the reason for the quick and easy qualification, Hutcheson continued, "Factors that helped make the training so successful included the skill and enthusiasm of the press operators, along with the total commitment to excellence evident in all levels of Ramsey Press, Inc. from management and sales to prepress and proofing, right on into the pressroom."
"At Ramsey Press, we pride ourselves on our quality – quality in or processes and quality in our products," says Ramsey Press's Patrick Pagani, Head of Operations. "Our customers have long known of our quality printed products. But now our customers will know of our quality processes – documented and approved by a globally recognized third-party – sanctioned by IDEAlliance."
Nicole Colon, President of Ramsey Press, continued by saying, "It is great to be recognized as a leading provider of quality printing in the Greater New York Area. Many of the more well-known and larger printers in the area don't have this kind of third–party quality recognition. We have worked hard in the last 10 years building our reputation for being one of the highest quality commercial printing companies in the area. It's nice to have that verified with our G7 Master Printer Qualification."
